The 61st Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF) will unspool entirely online from 5-15 November, screening a total of 177 films available to local audiences, who can purchase their tickets on the festival’s website. TIFF’s artistic director, Orestis Andreadakis, underlines: “As we wheel out the Festival’s online version, we don’t cease to seek new theoretical tools to interpret not only cinema and the arts, but also the very reality that surrounds us. We set up visual art events in Thessaloniki’s public space; we plan alternative solutions for all our Festival’s upcoming actions. Our motto ‘Cinema, no matter what’ is a means for love and understanding, a way for us to lay down some rules of our own, over the ones imposed by the new coronavirus, a reaction against the reversed world we have immersed in”.
