The “Maria Tsakos” Foundation hosted in its Chios premises, a pre-festival promotion of documentaries of historical and social interest. This annual Festival is funded by the Prefecture of North Aegean and co-organized by the University of the Aegean.
As the name indicates, each year, the Festival is being held on an island on the North Aegean, where awarded documentary directors are hosted. The Artistic Director of the related events is Mr. Kostas Spyropoulos.
This year, the Festival was launched with a documentary on “PATRIS, the wreckage”, dedicated to greek seamanship. This documentary on the most unique steamboat wreckage discovered in the Mediterranean Sea, was filmed in cooperation with the Museum of Industrial History of Syros Island.
