More than 70 films at the 7th London Greek Film Festival!

More than 70 films and 20 scripts are presented in this year’s London Greek Film Festival. As ever independent, progressive, creative and alternative, the London Greek Film Festival opened its doors and welcome its audience on 6th October. The festival started with a wonderful special screening: The Trojan Women, Directed by Michael Cacoyannis (1971).

The festival that has been loved by film enthusiasts and producers, artists, writers and film directors stays loyal to its aim: to become the international meeting point for modern Greek film from all around the world.

This year the festival will run from 6 to 18 October. During this time it will present more than 70 selected films at Westbourne Studios (242 Acklam Road, London W10 5JJ), next to the artistic neighbourhood of Portobello. At the same time, 20 selected short and feature film scripts will be presented online. Film categories include feature fiction films, short fiction films, documentaries, experimental films, and video art.

The festival accepts films and screenplays by modern Greek creators from all over the world, but also by international filmmakers, producers, artists & writers whose work related to Greece. It is one of the most significant events promoting modern Greek culture in London and in Europe, presenting a positive and creative face of Greece.

London Greek Film Festival provides networking and collaboration opportunities and it advances new technologies that combine the old wonderful cinema with the new ways of contemporary filmmaking.

The festival will concluded on 18th October with the “Odysseus Awards” event, at Theatro Technis in London (26 Crowndale Road, London, NW1 1TT), awarding the best films in each category, as well as film directors, writers, actors and artists.

 
 
 
 
 

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
