“Slingshot is a movie about a failed, chaotic and unpredictable ride on the incredible all-day festival. It was supposed to be ended by the end of the show in Athens, Greece. But it is still going on”.
A city where people gather to celebrate and celebrate with each other. A great place to be, to live and to be young.
This film was made in the run-up of the SLINGSHOT Festival promising future of Athens as an international city.

It was founded by artist Orestis Koutsonis who saw the need for a festival that would take place in downtown Athens, just like the ones held in other major cities of Greece. The first edition of SLINGSHOT Amsterdam took place in June 2014 at Hotel Domaine de Luxembourg, Amsterdam and involved artists from Greece, Croatia and Italy. In 2015 it was decided to move the festival to Athens where one of the organizers at that time became a publicist at event organizer TENT Europe as well as producer of events with her previous event organizing career.
