We must underline the high quality of films and scripts that took part in the festival, and the really great work of Greek and International Directors, Producers and Writers form across the world. The festival, as always independent, alternative, progressive and creative, promotes the positive face of Greece abroad and do not forget its aim: to be the international meeting point for contemporary Greek films from around the world.

Indeed, with a new initiative to attract international film productions in Greece, will be launched by the Festival, by the end of 2015, the based in London service “Filming in Greece”; the website filmingingreece.com will be activated soon for this particular purpose.
Please note this change: from 2016, the festival will be presented every May. The next 9th annual London Greek Film Festival, will take place from 15 to 21 May 2016.

The festival wants to thank all the supporters, and of course the creators and friends from across the world that support all these years.
As usual in recent years, the Festival will offer honorary Odysseus Awards in a special ceremony in Athens in December.
On the festival's website, there are always all the information about the films and scripts, including photographic material.
