The New York City Greek Film Festival is an annual showcase for the best new movies from Greece. In recent years, there has been a strong resurgence in the quality and adventurousness of Greek cinema.
This vitality represents an artistic response to the economic turmoil of recent years, with films that are making their mark on the international film festival circuit by examining modern-day Greece through social, political, and personal stories.
