11th International Archaeological Film Festival – Day 6


The Greek Film Archive

Iera Odos 48, Athens


15 May 2022



The so-called archeological film does not only deal with the research, excavations, discoveries and monuments created by humans, but also with the conditions and the surrounding atmosphere of each era. It is a complex work with scientific, social, political, but mainly anthropological details. And these details do not concern the man of a specific geographical place and time, but the Man everywhere around the globe, the “Ecumenical Community”. This year’s event is dedicated to the ecumenical Mikis Theodorakis and will take place between the 10 and 16 May.

The idea of ​​an Archaeological Film Festival, which was missing from Greece, a country intertwined with the very concept of archaeology, was inspired by the director Memi Spyratou in 1995, after successive awards at similar festivals abroad.
