The Thessaloniki International Film Festival works not only as a presentation platform for the year's Greek productions, but also for the creations of emerging film makers from all over the world. Founded in 1960 as the Week of Greek Cinema, it became international in 1992, including a Competition Section for feature length films by emerging directors presenting their first or second film.
This list includes each year's winner of the festival's top prize "The Golden Alexander" from 1992, when it became international, until today.
In 2002 'Mizu no onna' and 'Sud sanaeha' were tied and shared the award.
Also in 1992 'Orlando' tied with 'Gamis tsekva'.
