The Athens Film Office (AFO) was created in March 2020 through the Athens Development and Destination Management Agency (ADDMA). Its main goal has been to transform the City of Athens into a “film-friendly city” attracting international productions to the Greek capital.
The Athens Film Office facilitates and promotes media productions in Greece’s capital city. From city to coast, and classical to contemporary, Athens has outstanding options for every production. The office connects creatives with local service providers that handle everything from transport to translation, as well as supporting events that bring creative people together to continue the city’s millenia-long artistic tradition.
Our mission at the Athens Development and Destination Management Agency is to promote Athens as an attractive year-round destination for residents, visitors, professionals and investors. With this in mind, ADDMA plans and implements an integrated development and promotion strategy to enhance the city's image.
“The Owl was the perfect hub to meet industry professionals, learn the craft and strategize a career path that can only lead to great things.”
“It was an absolute privilege to spend time and learn from mentors who
are leaders in their fields and participants who are so talented in a
city with some of the oldest stories in the world. A truly enriching
and unforgettable experience!”
“I just wanted to thank you both personally for The Owl workshop last
week - it was the most amazing experience, and so well run, and I
hope you both got to take some time off to relax afterwards. I've had
to help organize similar events before, and I know how much work goes
into everything, and it was very much appreciated.”
“It was such a valuable experience and I feel like I won't absorb it
all until I go back over my notes in the coming weeks. I'm looking
forward to it!”
“Great mentors, very interesting panels and lovely people.
The mix of producers, agents and writers was great and very inspiring.
It helped me to develop my script not only from an artistic point of
view, but also taking into account the needs of the industry.
Theworkshop also provided a good insight into the US system and the
Greek film industry.”
