For 2019 PCAI supports Midnight Express Film Club in Athens. The club was established in 2017 by film critic Akis Kapranos and takes place in Aavora Art cinema, a historical cinema house in downtown Athens. It includes more than 5.500 members consisting mainly of young cinephiles aging from 18 to 25 years old. From the very beginning Midnight Express screening events were met with overwhelming success receiving a lot of press coverage and often being sold out. Every so often film critics, directors, script writers and actors are invited to the events to present films and discuss with the audience.
A number of acclaimed films that either bear ecological interest or focus on sustainability and environmental awareness are included in this year’s Midnight Express screenings on the occasion of PCAI’s sponsorship.
