The grand tribute hosted by the 64th Thessaloniki International Film Festival (2-12/11/2023) will unravel the unique and poetic gaze of the renowned film director Takis Kanellopoulos.
Within the framework of the tribute, nine films of the visionary auteur from Thessaloniki will be screened, while a part of Kanellopoulos’ work will be restored by the Festival, with the support of the Greek Film Centre.
The tribute is matched by an original visual art installation dedicated to Kanellopoulos’ work in the fields of cinema and literature.
Multi-awarded historian and writer Mark Mazower, head of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Public Humanities Initiative (SNFPHI) at Columbia University, will attend the Festival to take part in a discussion, following the screening of the film “Glory Sky”.
The movie will be screened in universally accessible terms, making it available to the entirety of the audience, with no exceptions.
