The 6th Athens Open Air Film Festival is cooperating with the British embassy and the British Council and participating in the international celebration marking the 400th anniversary since William Shakespeare’s death.

Six films inspired by Shakespeare’s plays will be projected as a tribute to Shakespeare, called “Shakespeare in the City”.

The festival will take place from June to September, projecting more than twenty movies with free entrance. The events will be hosted in squares, museums and open air cinemas.

The Greek tourism organisation is sponsoring the event for the fourth year, while the City of Athens Culture, Sport and Youth organisation will also contribute.
