A comic book for the Thessaloniki International Film Festival

The Thessaloniki International Film Festival celebrates 60 years– six decades that connect Nikos Koundouros with Finos Films, Jim Jarmusch with Catherine Deneuve and the new generation of Greek filmmakers, the Golden Alexander with the Festival’s publication “First Shot”, the Thermaic Gulf with world cinema.     In order to celebrate the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival (31/10 – 10/11/2019) and all the things that characterize and compose it, in order to talk about everything we love and about all the people who have loved the Festival, we prepared a special edition. TIFF presents the Festival, a comic book made by young artists. Festival deals with the past, the present and the future of the Festival.     Comic artists George Goussis, Panagiotis Pantazis and Georgia Zahari created a love story that deals with film, art, and life itself. TIFF is not only about movies: it is our days and nights, the theaters, the bright mornings by the sea and the crowded bars, the meetings, collaborations and co-productions, the discussions on our future.     The lives of the two heroes, Sotiris and Daria, are intertwined with the history of the Festival, as they fall in love and grow older in three Festival eras: its present, past and future. From Nanni Moretti to Theodoros Angelopoulos, beloved filmmakers and actors appear in the city of Thessaloniki and in the Festival’s venues, guiding the heroes and commenting on the relationship of the young couple.
