The ceremony for the announcement of the winners of the ‘Odysseus Awards’ and the ‘Cosmocinema Awards’ concluded this year’s 11th annual London Greek Cinema Festival. The festival was held between 7-12 May at London’ Theatro Technis.

The awards ceremony was attended by many of the participating directors, producers and scriptwriters, the Ambassador of Greece in the UK Mr Dimitris Karamitsos-Tziras, the Embassy’s Press Councillor Mrs Elena Soupiana, as well as friends and supporters of the festival. The evening’s host was the Greek correspondent Mr Thanasis Gavos.

The festival featured a rich competition section with quite a few unique world or UK premieres, outstanding films from across the world and inspiring creators. The screenings involved feature fiction films, short fiction films, documentaries, video art, experimental films, animation and music videos. There was also a special script competition section.

This year the London Greek Film Festival launched a purely international section, placing it under its umbrella: the new Cosmocinema Festival or Cosmocinema Awards, expanding its network of collaborations and activities. This section aims to function as a strong link between the Greek and Greek-themed productions and the productions from the international cinematography community.

The London Greek Film Festival attributes particular emphasis to the modern philosophy of Greek cinema and to international networking opportunities. These productions make a mark of the new Greek cinema from all over the world, showing that despite the difficulties it is exceptionally creative and that it combines the good old cinema’s creativity with the capabilities offered by new technologies.

“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.
