The 13th Annual New York City Greek Film Festival Shines Bright in New York City

The 13th Annual New York City Greek Film Festival Shines Bright in New York City

The 2019 NYCGRFF showcased the largest number of films ever in its 13-year run, with screenings of 50 feature-length and short films. This year a new selection of films was introduced from emerging international voices who have produced films around topics of Greek interest.

In addition to the spectacular selection of films there was also an incredible retrospective tribute to Alexander the Great with two exhibitions.

“The Legend of Alexander the Great and Byzantine Legacy” was a digital project tracing the Macedonian ruler’s history and legacy through the centuries. “Alexander” was a display of eight Alexander the Great-themed engravings carved by prominent artists from the XOTARIS gallery.
To start the film festival off with a bang playing to the sold-out audience was the screening of the 2018 film “In This Land Nobody Knew How to Cry.” The story is about when something magical happens in a small, uncharted island somewhere in the Aegean Sea. Two unsuspected foreigners, a French member of the European Parliament and a young Greek economist arrive in the idyllic Armenaki with a fishing boat. They become acquainted with the bizarre lifestyle and subversive moral values of the local people.

The memorable opening night was host to a lovely party that followed with wine toasts and Greek delicacies. Leading actress Margarita Panousopoulou was on hand at the soiree and mingled with guests throughout the bash.
