12th Annual Los Angeles Greek Film Festival 2018 LAGFF

The 12th Annual Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) will be held on June 4 (UCLA), and June 6 - 10, 2018 at the landmark Egyptian Theatre located at 6712 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles.

The Six-Day Festival celebrates the best of new films from Greek filmmakers worldwide and promotes Greek cinema and cultural exchange while bridging the gap between the filmmakers and Hollywood. This year a record number of film submissions were received ranging in subjects from immigration and economic collapse to documentaries about the beauty and history of Greece.

Special “Orpheus Awards” are given to the most outstanding new films in the dramatic, documentary and short film categories. The theme of this year’s “Orpheus Awards” is “The Academy of Greeks”, paying tribute to Greek artists who have received an Academy Award or Oscar Nomination since 1935.

The Closing Night feature film precedes the star-studded Awards Ceremony which will be followed by a Greek feast under the Hollywood stars at the Egyptian courtyard. The Best Supporting Actor of “West Side Story”, George Chakiris, will be one of the honorees this year with actress Rita Moreno presenting his Award.
