The official Cannes description reads, “The international quartet enchants the Athenian audience from the 2,000 year-old stage of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus with musical reflections on love, hope and heartbreak.
“Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the wildly entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is infused with the one-of-a-kind charm of Bill Murray.”

In addition, Evi Kalogiropoulou’s feature film “Cora”, which was presented at the L ‘Atelier of the Festival Cinefondation, won the Prix ArteKino YouTube – the only prize awarded to L’ Atelier and accompanied by the amount of 10.000 euros.
“Cora”, which was recently included in a financing program of the Hellenic Cinema Center, is produced by Amanda Livanou of Neda Film.
