Athens Open Air Film Festival cannot be stopped. Our favourite summertime tradition returns for its 11th edition after last year's successful rollout under social distancing measures. If you're not clued-up on how AOAFF works, the plan is simple; (mostly) classic films are screened in summer cinemas and other popular locations in Athens, such as museums, archaeological sites and architectural landmarks. Did we mention that the entrance is free?
This year's schedule has just been announced with the festival kicking off on June 14 and stretching up to August 20. Check the programme below as well as the instructions on how to get your hands on those free tickets.
