🌿Laurel🌿
The tradition of awarding a laurel wreath to the winner began in the Pythias at Delphi in Greece in, the 6th century BC.
They were organized in honor of the god Apollo, who usually appeared with a laurel wreath in memory of the nymph Daphne who transformed herself into a plant to escape his amorous moods. The plant was named "Daphne".

The International Film Festival of Greece opens its doors to the audience for the forth time to present domestic and international films, video clips and screenplays .

The first edition of the festival took place on 29 and 30 April at Art63 (2023), the second edition on 3d and 4th October at Cine Alimos (2023), the third edition on 27 and 28 January 2024 at Alimos Municipal Theatre "Karolos Koun", and hosted short and feature films from around the world.

    The impressions in the recap video showed how great this festival is and at the same time it made us sad that we couldn't be there in person when our film was shown. Great location and great atmosphere. We very much hope that we will be there at the next opportunity.
