This year’s official poster is drawn by graphic-designer illustrator Vassilis Mexis. He describes the poster as follows:
“For the 22nd consecutive year the “Athens International Film Festival Opening Nights” remain the biggest cinematic event in the city, which dresses up and welcomes the Festival.
This year’s poster reflects this very thought, and it shows the cinema and the city at night communicating and interacting through a game, forming an elegant evening silhouette.
The figure stands in the center of a symmetrical design, which is a modernized homage to the Art Deco style, an artistic movement that dominated the time when cinema acquired color and voice, leaving behind the era of silent film.
In the same way the festival leaves behind the summer and brings the autumn evenings to life, offering us the brilliant “Opening Nights”!”
