Athens Photo Festival – International Festival of Contemporary Photography & Related Media
Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe. Exploring critical issues relevant to our times, our programme works within an international, national and local context, encompassing a variety of activities designed to reflect the diversity of contemporary photographic practice, and to create opportunities for exchange of dialogue, artistic expression and international engagement.
The 2016 main programme will be comprised of a series of solo and group exhibitions, presenting a wide spectrum of works selected through an international open call for proposals in combination with invited artists. At the core of the festival is a range of events, including portfolio reviews, screenings, talks and discussions, workshops, and various participatory projects and ephemeral projects. In addition to the main venue-based programme, the festival encourages community involvement through satellite exhibitions in various locations in the city.
