        LAGFF 2021

        The 15th Los Angeles Greek Film Festival is celebrating the breadth and depth of Greek Cinema today. The LAGFF virtual edition will offer New Greek Cinema with curated features, shorts, documentaries, animations on a secure platform accompanied by a host of webinars, live and pre-recorded Q&A sessions. Due to COVID-19, the festival will run on-demand only for this year from May 10 to May 30th. The virtual component allows this year’s Festival to reach a global audience. With over 60 features, shorts, docs, and animated films, LAGFF 2021 is the largest online Greek Film Festival outside of Greece. LAGFF showcases new films from Greece and Cyprus and includes works by international filmmakers of Greek descent. The Festival promotes Greek cinema, cultural exchange and helps to bridge the gap between Greek filmmakers and Hollywood.
