Hellenic Film Society USA Presents Virtual Greek Film Festival: Greek Film Expo on Demand Available Online July 10-20, 2020
New York, June 30, 2020—The Hellenic Film Society USA (HFS) announced the first-ever virtual Greek film festival in the US, to be held July 10-20, 2020. Audiences across the country will have the opportunity to stream ten quality, entertaining Greek films to their devices throughout the US. For many of the films, it will be their US premiere. In addition, virtual interviews with directors of the films are also planned.
Until this year, HFS presented the New York Greek Film Expo film festival in the spring in movie theaters in New York City and Long Island. When New York theaters closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society explored other options for presenting Greek films to its loyal audiences and decided on a virtual film festival.
“We are thrilled to present these fine films on demand, at a time when people are looking for ways to be entertained safely,” says Jimmy DeMetro, HFS President. “We believe that watching a film in a movie theater is the best viewing experience, but we are proud to be breaking new ground. Going virtual gives us the opportunity to reach a national audience for the first time. We have a great line-up of award-winning films from Costa-Gavras’ latest to a classic comedy starring Aliki Vougiouklaki.”
