12th Annual Los Angeles Greek Film Festival 2018 LAGFF

Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) showcases new films from Greece and Cyprus and includes works by international filmmakers of Greek descent.

 

The Los Angeles Greek Film Festival showcases new films from Greek filmmakers worldwide. Our foremost goal is to promote Greek Cinema and cultural exchange while bridging the gap between Greek filmmakers and Hollywood. Orpheus Awards are given to the most outstanding new films in the dramatic, documentary and short film categories.

Now in our 12th year, Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) is witnessing a new wave of Greek Cinema emerging from an irreverent generation of young filmmakers who insist on breaking ties with past trends and seeing things in their own unique way. The results are impressive and include recognition in global film circles such as the Cannes, Venice and Sundance film festivals. Our place as a center for Greek filmmakers from around the world is taking on new significance as we assume an active role not only in reflecting the blossoming of Greek Cinema but also in promoting modern Greek culture by highlighting its hidden treasures and root.

The festival takes place in the heart of Hollywood at the iconic Egyptian Theatre over 5 summer days and nights. Red carpet Opening and Closing Night receptions, Filmmaker Brunch at the home of the Consul General of Greece, free industry events, and over 50 films will be included in this year's festival.
