20th annual Greek film festival at Palace Centro
Laura Webster | On 29, Oct 2013
We have all seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but itâ€™s time for some authentic Greek cinema.
The Palace Centro Cinema is host to the 2013 Delphi Bank Greek Film Festival, starting on the 31st of October.
Iâ€™m not saying we wonâ€™t see hilariously enormous family gatherings, but expect to delve a little deeper into Greek culture.
The festival is returning to Brisbane for its 20th anniversary and will be bigger and better than ever.
Having experienced a cinematic renaissance, Greek cinema has recently received much acclaim on the film festival circuit.
The countryâ€™s socio-economic climate inspired the revival and has resulted in new and creatively daring film production.
The festival will showcase eight of the best pieces of contemporary drama to come from Greece, with titles including The Daughter, A Touch of Spice and A.C.A.B: All Cats are Brilliant.
Films from the festivalâ€™s past will also see the silver screen once more in celebration of the festivalâ€™s long running history.
Opening night will kick off with Christoforos Papakaliatisâ€™, What Ifâ€¦Â¸ a sliding doors style romantic drama set amidst the countryâ€™s economic crisis.
Then continue the celebrations – Greek style – at the official after party.
Experience some authentic Greek food, drink, music and have a great night out. Opa!
Tickets for the opening night event are now available to purchase online.
