An Important Message from AIFVF:

Like all of you, we have been intently following reports of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and considering how it might affect our festival scheduled for April 6-12. Two days ago the governor of Ohio declared a state of emergency as news of three confirmed cases emerged. Yesterday, Ohio University cancelled all in -person classes until March 30th and our local k-12 schools also closed for this time.

We have decided that the best way to keep our staff, visiting filmmakers and audience safe is to re-schedule the festival for October 2020.

The new dates for the 47th Athens International Film + Video Festival will now be October 12-18, 2020.
