The Festival started in 2008, the brainchild of its Artistic Director Christos Prosylis. The London Greek Film Festival aims to showcase and promote contemporary Greek films and screenplays with no specific subject, or foreign films and screenplays with a Greek interest [cast, directors, producers, subject, filming in Greece etc.] from around the world. It also promotes Greek culture in general, organizing international competitions [poetry, literature, photography, art, forums, etc], workshops, seminars, events, and many more, with emphasis given to modern creators and authors. It aims to be the meeting point and the crossroads between East and West in relation to modern Greek filmmakers and the Greek Cinema.

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.”
