A few words about the Festival

“Having the experience of the previous successful festivals and being motivated to organise even more interesting events and happenings, we have prepared a programme of activities that will amaze you!

Over the years, it has evolved into a great festival under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and the City of Athens, with the participation of ATTIKO METRO and ERT as Grand Sponsors. Every year the Festival organizes book presentations, talks, seminars, workshops, theatrical performances and all kinds of events with guests from Greece and abroad.

This year, during the Festival, major social issues such as the position of women in today's world, femicides, racism, inclusion, internet safety and artificial intelligence will be discussed. Also, this year the Festival will be focused on raising awareness about the difficulties faced by people with partial or total vision loss, as we plan to provide full access to all events. An ambitious plan that we are delighted to see take shape!

The 5th Agatha Crime Fiction Festival will start with a Pre-Festival Event at the Hellenic American Union Amphitheatre where the famous Scottish author, Ian Rankin, will be present. Thereafter, from May 8th to June 5th, there will be daily events at various locations in Athens, one of which will be a meet-up with the beloved Italian author, Carlo Lucarelli at the Italian Cultural Institute on May 15th in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute and Dioptra Publications.

The culmination of the activities will take place on May 24th-26th at Serafio City of Athens. The French writers Hervé Le Corre and Bernard Minier, as well as one of the most famous Turkish writers of our time and particularly beloved by the Greek public, Ahmet Umit, will be the guests of this three-day event.”
