CineDoc 2018-19 runs in Athens and an additional four Greek cities (Thessaloniki, Patras, Volos, Amaliada), for its tenth year, presenting 16 new exciting documentaries to Greek audiences.
The year-round festival opens with the screening of “Back to the Top”, the story of a 33-year old punk rock paraplegic, and his friends, who plan to climb on the highest peak of Mount Olympus. Other films screened throughout the year include IDFA winner “The Distant Barking of Dogs”, Simon Lereng Wilmont's portrait of 10-year-old Ukrainian boy Oleg, whose life was turned upside down by the on-going war in Eastern Ukraine
Established in 2009, CineDoc organises regular screenings of award-winning European and international documentary films. Screening across Greece, CineDoc selects films relevant to our contemporary lives, as a catalyst for discussion, inspiration and impact. Special attention is given to films promoting inter-cultural understanding, sustainable living and human rights.
