The 9th Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) takes places from June 3-7. This year’s LAGFF welcomes a record 35 features, documentaries and short films to the programme, including three World premieres, 14 US premieres and 10 Los Angeles premieres. The festival promotes Greek Cinema and cultural exchange, while bridging the gap between Greek filmmakers and Hollywood. Orpheus Awards are given to the most outstanding new films in the dramatic, documentary and short film categories.

The Festival opened with Little England by Pantelis Voulgaris, the tale of a secret love shared between two sisters and one man set in the seafaring community of the island Andros, Greece, during the 1930’s. The Festival ends with the closing night presentation of the film Xenia, a road movie featuring two brothers in search of their father, by Panos Koutras
