At the Thessaloniki Film Festival

The Thessaloniki International Film Festival, which is celebrating its 48th anniversary this year, will kick off this Friday and run to Sunday, November 25.

In the past 48 years, the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, which begins this Friday and runs to November 25, has blossomed from a domestic event geared at local industry to a regional force of international stature.

Last year the TIFF featured 230 films and sold 153,000 tickets. Some 100 members of the international press followed the event, and it was attended by about 500 industry representatives from around the globe.

Sponsorships, which account for one-third of the festival’s budget, have risen by approximately 20 percent this year. These are no mean figures under any standards, especially for a country the size of Greece.
