The 22nd Delphi Bank Greek Film Festival

THIS WONDERFUL FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS IN 2016 to showcase and celebrate Greek film over three nights. Koulla Roussos, the festival's organiser, says the festival is an important opportunity to celebrate the Hellenic community in the Top End.

“The 2016 Greek Film Festival has been organised on behalf of the Philhellenic Cultural Association of NT (PCANT) to showcase our vibrant and contemporary cosmopolitan heritage. As chairperson of the newly formed PCANT, my aim is to broaden the appeal of contemporary Hellenic culture – particularly as it is being lived on a day to day level in diasporic communities with large Greek populations, like Darwin,” Roussos said.

“The program includes 1969 comedy The Fairy and the Man – a film starring Aliki Vougiouklaki – considered to be the biggest star of Greek cinema. I remember watching her films at the Paspaley Cinema in Parap in the 70s and 80s with my family and other Greek families.”

Due to its success last year, the festival has expanded from three sessions to five, with short films by emerging Greek Australian film makers. Also included this year is visual arts exhibition Concrete Diaspora, at Darwin Visual Arts Association. Head along to the beloved Deckchair Cinema and celebrate Greek film and culture. Opa!
