The only Greek film festival, dedicated to adventure sports, returns, for the 5th consecutive year to a new venue and with a renewed composition, presenting once again unique movie productions, photo exhibitions and, of course, immersive speeches from distinguished people of sports and action, which make up a unique, thematic and spectacular event.
Adventure Film Festival Greece has proven to be the greatest celebration of outdoor activities, as over the past 4 years, over 8,000 people honored it with their presence and attended a packed theater during the screenings of 87 films, enjoyed 26 speeches and admired 16 photo exhibitions, all dealing with a wide range of activities carried out through man’s willpower, transforming the elements of nature into an endless field of action. Our aim is not to create a story but rather facilitate a change in everyday life for all of us.
At the 5th AFF Anniversary, at Pierce Theater - The American College of Greece, on Saturday November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th, athletes, filmmakers, photographers, equipment companies and outdoor activities join forces by composing a two-day celebration that became an institution. All lovers of adventure and adrenaline will be there.
Adventure Film Festival includes:
Films - AFF has matured over the years and it presents screenings of full-length international documentaries. This year's program features by 12 screenings, most of them premieres in our country, through which the audience will have the opportunity to travel to unprecedented places and live unique experiences.
Viewers will, through the screenings, live with an indigenous community and learn from them how to make a canoe that will then lead them into the journey of a lifetime. They will experience the journey of searching for the oldest sky of the world. For some, the ocean is a terrible and dangerous place. But for the AFF guests, it is a vast world of fun, freedom and opportunity that the audience can enjoy at its fullest. Trapped in the "world's largest open-air prison" in Gaza, where the war is raging, they will meet a new generation of people who live and create experiences in the waves. Finally, through the continuous motion process that raises questions, they will wonder: "Can running save a rain forest?"
In the specially designed Red Bull Mixed Media Academy, the participants of the 3-day self-titled workshop will have the opportunity to present what they have learned next to photographers & videographers of the Red Bull Media House network, through the content they will create, which will be presented for first time in the 5th AFF room. The winner will be selected at the end.
Photograph exhibitions by acclaimed Greek artists will adorn the Festival's venues, taking us on a journey to the most beautiful outdoor sceneries of Greece and the world.
