3-Month Free subscription and access to the Cinobo platform and participation in the monthly meetings of the exclusive Film Club for all the SNFCC Members!
April – June 2022
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) collaborates with Cinobo, offering for 3 months + 14 days free subscription to all the SNFCC Members. The ultimate cinema streaming platform based in Athens, has a collection of almost 1,000 films, which is enriched in a daily basis with films selected from the biggest film festivals in the world.
At the same time, the SNFCC Members will have the opportunity to participate in the exclusive SNFCC Members Film Club x Cinobo!
Together with the Cinobo curating team, the SNFCC Members will participate in a monthly talk that starts with a film presentation, goes beyond the limits of a "lecture" and expands into an exciting cinematic dialogue.
This trimester we will focus on screening films, characterized as "Festival Gems", films that became popular through festivals, not necessarily because they won a major award. Among other things, we will also discuss, how festivals managed to lead the way for some films, which otherwise would have hardly reached us. The dialogue will take place between the film, its festival journey, as well as its influence on the film.
The SNFCC Members Film Club x Cinobo films are the following:
- April: Enemy
Jake Gyllenhaal reunites with Denis Villeneuve, the director of the latest film “Dune”, in a hypnotic and surreal psychological thriller based on Nobel laureate José Saramagu's book "The Double". Villeneuve himself has stated that the form of the giant spider he presents in the film was inspired by Bourgeois sculpture, in an attempt to present the spider and its web as an extension of creating a political-social allegory in the film.
Festival Gem: Best Canadian Film | Toronto Film Critics Association Awards 2014
- May: Parasites
Bong Joon-ho is one of the most important contemporary directors and this is a triumph film, as it was the star at both the Oscars 2020 and the Cannes Film Festival 2019. Through Parasites he shows how family ties are affected by the financial state of the family, or maybe not, and it gives a fresh look on the class struggle.
Festival Gem: Best Picture Award | Oscar 2020, Best Director Award | Oscar 2020, Best Original Screenplay Award | Oscar 2020, Best International Feature Film Award| Oscar 2020, Palme d'Or | Cannes Festival 2019
- June: Honeyland
Nominated for the Best Documentary Film and International Feature Film Oscar Awards, for the first time in the Oscars’ institution history, the film captures the balance within the family, as well as between the man and nature. A reflection on the sustainable development value and ecological awareness.
