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.
