Odysseus Awards of the 7th annual London Greek Film Festival

In a very beautiful and cosy ceremony at Theatro Technis in London, was offered the Odysseus Awards of the 7th annual London Greek Film Festival, with the presence of the Ambassador of Greece in London, Mr. Konstantinos Bikas, the Head of the Press Office of the Greek Embassy Mr. Yorgos Dardavillas, and Consul. Sotirios Demestichas. The Odysseus Awards ceremony, presented by journalist Thanassis Gavos. Attended also film directors, screenwriters, producers from Greece, Cyprus, Great Britain, USA and other countries; friends and partners of the festival as well. The ceremony was accompanied by short art performances, which included favourite tunes and excerpts from the book "About Psyche" by Aristotle.

More than 70 films and 20 screenplays were presence this year at the London Greek Film Festival, and vied with each other for the Odysseus Awards. We should note the high level of entries, and truly enviable effort of the Greek cinematography, which is creative and competitive in the international film industry. The festival, as always independent, alternative, progressive and creative, supports the positive face of Greece abroad and do not forget the aim: to be the international meeting point for contemporary Greek film from around the world.

In a spartan ceremony we will offer honorary again the Odysseus Awards on December at Michael Cacoyannis Foundation in Athens, Greece, symbolically as Homer in Odyssey said: νόστιμον ἦμαρ (nostimon imar = the day of return).

The festival wants to say a Great Thank you to its sponsors and supporters and of course to filmmakers, screenwriters, producers, artists and friends from around the world, for their support all these years.

Artistic Director: film/theatre director Chris Prosylis

 

 
 
 
 

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
