Magic is everywhere: the young spectators of Park Your Cinema Kids know this very well.
The summer screenings at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center will remind young and old alike that magic may hide behind the seemingly most ordinary of stories, and that surprises are never-ending.
From the ingenious flying nanny of Mary Poppins Returns to the colorful Madrigal family in Encanto, and from the hilarious blunders of Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion to the live-action adaptation of the classical fairy tale The Secret Garden, this year’s program selections by the Athens International Children’s Film Festival will make attending families look at life from a different perspective, have loads of fun with the films’ plot twists, and embrace the unexpected. Oh, and one more thing: just like Elsa in Frozen, they will magically help them to never be afraid of the cold, ever again.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)
His genius finally recognized by his idol Chester V, inventor Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) gets to join Chester's company, where he can work full-time on technologies to help mankind. However, Flint soon discovers that his most-famous machine, which turns water into food, is still operating but now creates animal/vegetable hybrids. With the fate of humanity in Flint's hands, he and his friends set out to save the world from tacodiles, shrimpanzees and other deliciously dangerous creatures.
The film will be screened dubbed in Greek.
