Here we are : The great Thessaloniki film festival is over, but you cannot get enough, can you ?

Lucky you, from the 18 to the 21 of November will take place the 23rd edition of the GLAD film festival. It is a film festival that takes place each year in Thessaloniki with the support of other similar projects across Europe. The GLAD Film festival puts under the light the LGBTQI+ community by representing them in short or long films, which are screened to the public every afternoons and nights during those four days of event.

Moreover, the movies are competing to get the award for best long and best short for the event, the amount of the award is symbolic and depends on the income of the festival. The event takes place this year at the Warehouse 1 – Port, Averof Str., Thessaloniki 546 25 . Since it is near the city center and on the border of the ocean, you will have, on top of all the films, a nice place to wander around alone or with good company. From thursday at 6:00 PM to sunday at 9:15 PM, a lot of movies especially selected by the organisators of the festival will be screened. That is definitely a promise of a rich and varied content that will bring support and understanding to the queer community, because the directors are from all horizons and experiences.

The tickets can be bought online right here → Tickets for Thessaloniki International G.L.A.D. Film Festival – FilmFreeway
Know that you can still take one until the very day of the projection. Attention, the COVID is still part of the game; therefore, the places are limited to one hundred persons.

Isciane Lallement
My name is Isciane and I'm a French soul. I came here so I could explore the world a little while I'm young and free, and maybe share a part of my life with those who surround me. I deeply love history, literature, combat sports, videogames and music, not a huge fan of broccoli or being photographed though. Actually I think I'm a sweet person, calm and discreet; I'm always open to talk, and share with anybody who is interested.
