Athens Photo Festival

aphf15_logo Athens Photo Festival is the annual festival of photography in Greece and a premier cultural event in Athens, established in 1987 by the Hellenic Centre for Photography. It is the first festival of photography in Greece, and one of the five oldest of its kind in the world. Exploring issues relevant to our times, our programmes work internationally and locally, encompassing a variety of initiatives that enable people to understand and enjoy photography.
The upcoming edition marks the start of a new era, allowing the Festival to expand its role within an international network of periodic contemporary photography events. This ambition is reflected in the move to a new venue as well as to a new date, affording new possibilities. The next edition of the festival will take place during May-July 2015. The main exhibitions will be presented at the Benaki Museum, one of the oldest and most prestigious museums in Greece.
At the core of the programme is a series of initiatives and events such as portfolio reviews, talks, screenings, educational activities and other parallel events. In addition to the main program, the satellite exhibitions encourage community involvement through the satellite exhibitions across the city of Athens in galleries, cultural centres and institutions.
