In General, Greece and Ireland on 19 September 2014 at 10:00 am


Three Irish films feature in this year’s Athens International Film Festival, the 20th in the series.

They are Gold, a feature comedy directed by Niall Heery, psychological horror The Canal, directed by Ivan Kavanagh, and a documentary short, The Last Days of Peter Bergmann, directed by Ciaran Cassidy (Official Selection Sundance Film Festival).

On Friday 19 September at 7.30pm in the Odeon Opera cinema (Akadimias 57, Athens), there will be a bumper screening of two of the films, Gold and The Last Days of Peter Bergmann.

The directors of both movies are travelling all the way from Ireland to talk to the audience and to answer their questions. Entrance is only €6 and it promises to be a great night.

After the screenings (from around 11pm), the Irish embassy is hosting an Irish cinema party (with Jameson) in Bios rooftop bar on Pireos 84 for those who attended the screenings.
