The third Unseen Movies Festival by Pugnant Film Series will be at 28 May- 1 June 2020. We are determined and devoted in independent cinema and auteur cinema, as always, and we will present recent films that never reach the Athenian(greek) screening rooms & audience.
The program will focus in some of the most important films of contemporary cinema, also there will be some Tributes to filmmakers that we love.

You can find more about our style, looking at last year's edition

Also you can see at last 3 years Pugnant Film Series events to see what kind of films we are interested.

This is not a competitive festival. So, there are no awards and prizes.
