Exile Room is a non-profit organization based in downtown Athens. Established in 2009, it offers inspiration and education to established and aspiring filmmakers, as well as anyone who’s open to exploring the power of documentary. In the past 10 years we have built a dedicated following by offering free documentary screenings twice a month, complemented by masterclasses and workshops. We also run social outreach programs in the city, in prisons and remote areas of Greece. We believe documentary is an excellent way to build community: once you get to know your neighbours’ stories they cease to be strangers, paving the way for collaboration and mutual understanding.
