GIMME SHELTER FILM FESTIVAL 

Powered by ΑΜSTEL

Gagarin 205 Live Music Space 

     16, 23 October & 06 November 

Another GSFF for the books! 

Three super cool Mondays in Athens, filled with sounds and stories.

Three major premieres in the best company.

This October and November we travelled back in time with our beloved

The Dream Syndicate, the "founding fathers" of German Thash Metal

and the ever so iconic The Sonics (truth is we weren't able to end this edition the way we intended to, but this was beyond our control; in any case, we owe you a proper Special Closing Night).

Many thanks to AMSTEL for the amazing support

(and for making sure there was enough beer for everyone)!

Thank you for the hospitality, Gagarin 205.

 

Thank you, 𝟭𝟮𝟯𝗧𝗜𝗖𝗞𝗘𝗧𝗦.𝗴𝗿 and Hard Rock Cafe Athens

for taking care of ticket sales.

Huge shoutout and thanks to all of you for making our Mondays so f'n cool!

We'll miss you. But we'll see each again other very soon. 

For now... Τhat's a wrap!

Boom: A Film About The Sonics 

Greek Premiere 

Director: Jordan Albertsen

Live on stage: The Acid Visions

Guest: Jordan Albertsen

Venue: Gagarin 205 

Date: 06 November 2023 

GSFF proudly presents, for the first time in Greece, the untold story of the rise, disintegration and the most unlikely of reunions, of one of rock and roll’s most influential bands. A reunion that offered us unforgettable live memories, on the same stage that will host filmmaker Jordan Albertsen and opening act The Acid Visions.

The Sonics are the true unsung heroes of Rock and Roll and one of the only reasons (some) music doesn’t completely suck today. 

Jordan Albertsen's BOOM is big, bold and badass. Just like the band itself. 

The Sonics return to their favorite stage and this is their definitive story!

Total Thrash - The Teutonic Story 

Greek Premiere 

Director: Daniel Hofmann

Guest: Daniel Hofmann

Venue: Gagarin 205 

Date: 23 October 2023

The Greek premiere of Daniel Hofmann's,

"Total Thrash - The Teutonic Story" is coming to GSFF!

The definitive story of a metal sub-genre born in the Ruhr valley that got to conquer Europe, the world and, of course, Greece!

Thrash Metal pioneers, members of Sodom, Kreator, Destruction, Tankard and many other bands Greek metal fans came to love; those who defined the genre and keep it alive and kicking, writing new chapters to this day, are coming to GSFF to tell their story!

Filmmaker Daniel Hoffmann will be joining us for a live Q&A whilst local thrashers AMKEN, one of the most popular bands out there, will kick off proceedings.

Don't miss this for the world!
