Athens Jewish Film Festival

In sheer quality and number, this has got to be the best film festival in Athens every year. The films are carefully selected from all over the world by a local committee and shown practically non-stop for five days, including the opening film at the gala in the Georgia Museum of Art on Saturday. The films generally have a Jewish angle, though their themes are universal, and their genres are varied among drama, comedy, suspense, documentaries and shorts—you can hardly go wrong with a single one of them. Head immediately to and plan your festival! Buy a pass for all 12 films and the shorts, or pay at the box office as you go.
