At the purpose-built main open-air cinema, we will host a magical outdoor premiere followed by the festival opening party where guests will be able to enjoy drinks by the sea and meet some of the outstanding talents and authorities contributing to the realisations of the Festival.
Pass & invitation holders will enjoy complimentary drinks offered by the festival partners.

The Aegean Film Festival together with its alliances and partners have set a goal to achieve measurable environmental change through the creation of an international programme, bringing together filmmakers, scientists, environmentalists, philanthropists and opinion leaders. During the last 2 days of the Festival, we organise panel talks by the invited experts.

By assembling the knowledge, resources and communicators in the same location, we aim to fast-track projects and amplify awareness about ways to make a positive impact.
