Our summer cinema!


For the third year, Olympia International Film Festival and Camera Zizanio continue their summer cinema activities by providing a rich cinematic spectacle to the inhabitants of the small villages of Ilia.

Actually a new institution called “cinema in the squares” has been created and is very popular.

CINEMA_SUMMER2016_50x70Every night we visit a different village.  The screen is set up in squares, schoolyards and -for the first time this season -at beaches where a great number of people attend the screenings there!

In this way, we revive the travelling cinema which had been very popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s.

We screen quality films for children and young people, all from Youth Plan’s film archive.

The screenings will run throughout the months of July and August, as well as the first days of September as there’s heavy demand!
