The Greek Film Festival returns to Palace Cinemas in October to showcase the best of contemporary Greek Cinema with a packed program of features, documentaries and shorts.
This year's Opening Night feature is George Kordellas’ remarkable debut ROZA OF SMYRNA, a story of star-crossed lovers set against
the turbulence of the Greco-Turkish War. During a research trip, museum collector Dimitris stumbles upon three historic curiosities buried in the depths of a small antique shop in the lost city of Smyna: an old photograph, a wedding dress stained with blood, and a letter. His search to uncover the truth behind these items leads him to the enigmatic Roza, matriarch of a once powerful family who has been holding the weight of the past on her shoulders for decades.
Featuring stunning cinematography and two original songs by Greek icon Haris Alexiou, this Greek cinema event of the year is not to be missed.
