The 18th international documentary festival of Thessaloniki
The greatest challenge that the festival has faced from the very moment of its creation is the representation of reality. In an age where a lot of citizens of the world have easy access to the images and to fast transmission of messages, the role of the documentary in education, information and entertainment appears to be a must. The images of social, historical, political, and more importantly human reality in the 21st century are moving, disturbing, shocking and sometimes entertaining, but they are always the starting point for adventurous explorations. These images meet every March in Thessaloniki, with an enthusiastic audience trying to explore the human nature through the art of the documentary.
