After A Year’s Absence, the Francophone Film Festival Returns Online April 6-14

ATHENS — After a year's absence due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Francophone Film Festival at the French Institute of Greece will celebrate its 21st birthday with screenings online from April 6 to 14.

The full program will be announced on March 30, and be available as of that date at the festival page, www.festivalfilmfrancophone.gr.

Its trailer, developed by Nowhere Studio, reflects on the desire for reunion and the obstacles that the pandemic placed on two friends, only to finally hold one another again. "The world turned upside down, up became down, next door became far away – I see you, yet I'm not sure you're there," its director Constantine Antonopoulos said.

The films shown online during the festival will be screened at film theaters during the summer.
