Founded in 1950 through the enthusiasm of the Athens Association of Film Critics, it wasn’t until the 1960s that key members of the association, artists and writers, formalized their activities to establish this nonprofit cultural institution as it is known today. This initiative was led by Aglaia Mitropoulou, whose close collaboration and exchange with the French Cinémathèque was significant to the archive’s development. Such relationships continue, and the Greek Film Archive and Film Museum remains committed to the research, collection, conservation, and promotion of Greek and international film heritage. With its strong tradition of presenting, discussing, and analyzing films and other relevant documents, the Greek Film Archive hosts the premieres and special cinema screenings of the work of documenta 14 filmmakers in Athens.
