The Greek festivals accredited by “EFFE -Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe”

Since 2014 the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation has acted as a HUB for the EFFE – Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe program.

The program launched as an initiative of the European Festival Association (EFA), with the support of the European Parliament. It is in essence a European Festivals’ platform, which offers the opportunity, within the EU, to acknowledge the hard work and the contribution of the festivals taking place in EU member states.

For the 2017-2018 EFFE-Europe for Festivals, Festival for Europe, the Greek Festival Hub Experts assessed the applications submitted, based on artistic commitment and innovative approaches, engagement with the local Society, as well as European and international perspectives criteria. Applications meeting the criteria were forwarded to the International Selection Committee, which evaluated and selected the festivals which were certified with the EFFE Label 2017 -2018.

1. Greek Festival
