Until November 5th, Montrealers will have the unique opportunity to get a close look at contemporary Greek cinema.
Athens based film festival programmer Avra Georgiou and Montreal based film distribution company FILMS TRANSIT are very happy to announce a first time week of contemporary Greek cinema to be held in Montreal at the Cinema du Parc running until Thursday November 5th.
Sponsored by Montreal restaurant MYTHOS, and the support of the Greek Consulate in Montreal, The Hellenic Community of Montreal, and the Greek Film Center in Athens along with the invaluable collaboration of the team at Cinema du Parc, the festival will present SIX recent fiction films and ONE wonderful documentary. On top of this all we are proud to bring back the all time Greek classic ZORBA THE GREEK in its fully restored version. We are grateful to VISION GLOBALE for their donation of Digital cinema projection equipment.
The film industry in smaller countries often does not find its way through the traditional distribution channels and many films are rarely seen outside of their own country. Greek cinema with a yearly production of around 25 feature films is no exception. The films proposed for the Montreal Greek Film Festival represent the different styles and ideas that inspire and move Greek filmmakers today, some of them against the backdrop of emigration as the communities of Greek people living outside of Greece are huge. Montreal is a good example.
