New York City Greek Film Festival
Thursday, Oct 20 - Sunday, Oct 23, 2011
The fifth annual New York City Greek Film Festival opens with four days of programming at Museum of the Moving Image, and continues with screenings at the SVA Theatre in Manhattan from October 27–30. Despite an economic crisis that makes the financing of motion pictures particularly difficult, the Greek film industry is experiencing an exciting renaissance. Last year’s startling and provocative family drama Dogtooth earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film. The equally bold Attenberg, featured in the festival, is one of this year’s most critically acclaimed films. The festival offers New Yorkers the opportunity to discover some important emerging filmmakers. For more information, visit nycgreekfilmfestival.com.
