Starting this month, Athens Ciné will expand its existing partnership with ATHfactor-Liberty Entertainment to launch a monthly hip-hop film series that will feature musical performances and panel discussions along with the screenings.
Ciné’s history with ATHfactor began in 2014 when the theatre hosted the Many Faces of Athens Hip Hop showcase during AthFest and has continued to expand since, most recently with the “Black Panther” red carpet mixer. The film series is the first of many events in the works at Ciné that will continue to help build the foundation of hip-hop in Athens.
“Ciné Athens is more than a movie theatre,” says ATHfactor’s Montu Miller, a veteran promoter in town. “it is a community space that brings film, art, and music together.”
