Docs in Exile Film Festival

Exile Room, with the support of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, presents Docs in Exile, an online film festival that will take place December 10-14, 2020.

Due to the pandemic, Exile Room’s customary screenings are migrating to your home screens in the shape of a 5-day-long festival that keeps the spirit of discovery that has always been our trademark alive. The festival consists of 30 feature-length and short documentaries that have largely never been screened in Greece before. Online admission is free.

Docs in Exile revolves around two central pillars: the Working Girls showcase, dedicated to all our female-identifying viewers who had had to fight for theirs rights in the workplace, and Queer Stories, unique tales of love and identity that could change your life, if only you’d let them. Parallel to that, the festival presents a hand-picked selection of short documentaries that will take your all over the world – no plane ticket necessary!

The screening platform will be activated on December 10 and all films will be available until December 14. Audience admission is free of charge and all films are subtitled in Greek. All you need to do is fill out a quick sign-up form.

The full schedule, as well as detailed information about how to navigate the platform, will be announced soon.



The Working Girls showcase is implemented by the Operational Program “Human Resources Development, Education and Lifelong Learning” and its co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund) and Greek National Funds.
