After reviewing a record-breaking 230 film submissions, the 14th Annual Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) programming team revealed its 53-film slate and 9 curated “Collections”.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Festival will run online and on-demand for 21 days (October 1-21), allowing for a global audience reach, for most films. The LAGFF 2020 slate includes 12 Features, 15 documentaries, 22 Shorts and 4 animated films. There are 43 premieres, including 4 World Premieres, 13 North American Premieres, and 5 US premieres, many others making their West Coast premiere.
“Diving head-first into the virtual universe, LAGFF continues to encourage and showcase new filmmakers as we embark on our 14th year”, explains Artistic Director Aristotle Katopodis. “Until we meet at the theaters again, join us online, watch films with your friends and family at home and get to know our filmmakers from all corners of the world right there, on your screen, in close-up!” Festival Trailer – https://bit.ly/3iyVxRT
