History The Athens International Film and Video Festival was founded in 1974, and since then has presented independent films from around the world. The Festival is sponsored by the Athens Center for Film and Video, a project of the College of Fine Arts at Ohio University. The Competition Process Each year, a Prescreening Committee comprised of artists, students, and community activists watch all the films and videos entered in the competition. After all entries have been watched, the prescreeners evaluate all entries to determine films to include in public screenings. Cash prizes are awarded by guest jurors, in four categories: documentary, experimental, narrative, and animation. Festival Jurors will be announced just prior to the Festival. Awards will be announced on the final day of the Festival. Competition films are then programmed around various themes that emerge from the films selected; our intention is to group films into shows that reflect a common thematic thread. How to get tickets Tickets can be purchased at The Athena Cinema box office 20 S. Court St., during regular theater hours.
