Discovery Days’ Successful Run in Greece

After a decade of programming in Los Angeles, Discovery Days had an inaugural run in Greece as an extension of the work done earlier in June. Program Director Araceli Lemos, Program Producers Joel Garber and Karina Logothetis, filmmakers Alki Politi, Dimitris Tsakaleas & Lida Vartzioti, Fokion Bogris, Iris Baglanea, Isabella Margara, Nikos Dayandas gathered in Athens, November 14-17, 2023, to receive the expert guidance of American instructors Ruth Atkinson and Jeff Stockwell during a 4-day intensive story & screenplay development program. Earlier in November, Script Consultant & Story Editor Ruth Atkinson gave a masterclass to a full auditorium at the 64th Thessaloniki Film Festival. The program came to fruition with generous support from The Hellenic Initiative.
