Hosted by the French Institute in Athens and supported by Unifrance, this year's festival will take place from March 31 through April 8 in Athens and April 7 through 12 in Thessalonica.

A tribute to Claude Chabrol featuring fifteen titles by the renowned director will be inaugurated on April 1 at the Greek Cinematheque by Costa-Gavras, with a screening of Merci Pour le Chocolat held in the presence of the actress Anna Mouglalis.
