For the sixth summer running, Park Your Cinema, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC’s) series of open-air cinema projections, welcomes the public at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park.
This year, for the selection of films addressed to adult viewers, the SNFCC inaugurates its partnership with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF), the country’s most prestigious film institution.
This summer, therefore, when our need to laugh is greater than ever, the TIFF presents a series of films that prove that comedy is, after all, a very serious matter.
High Fidelity (2000):
Music and love combine in Stephen Frears’ screen adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel.
