Talking about us:
 
“Whether those [recent Greek films] represent a dawn or twilight for the country's film-making, will be easier to judge after this event, which brings a handful of features, shorts and documentaries.”
The Guardian
 
“In the face of adversity, Greek cinema battles on.”
Time Out London
 
“It is an extremely important event which promotes Greece and its culture to London, a major cultural metropolis of Europe. (...) It presents one of Greece’s best-known showcases and meeting points for emerging talent, and seeks to promote the importance of film as a means to develop the next generation of filmmakers and moving image artists. (…) Definitely consists one of the most important initiatives of cultural diplomacy in the British capital.”
Embassy of Greece in London, Press Office
