Welcome to the fourteenth annual Greek Film Festival. The 2006 festival edition offers a gateway to the rich, complex culture of contemporary Greece through its lively and passionate cinema.

Once again the festival's lineup showcases the range and robustness of recent Greek cinema, with a wide variety of subjects including frantic farce (Woman is a... Tough Person), offbeat cityscape (A Dog's Dream), cross-cultural romance (Liubi), and sexually provocative comedy (Honey and the Pig). In addition, the series presents Unplanned, a fascinating documentary portrait of the Gypsy community in Greece.

The Festival pays tribute to director Michael Cacoyannis, who vividly brought to the screen Euripides’ ancient Greek tragedies Electra, The Trojan Women and Iphigenia starring screen icon Irene Pappas.

This year’s program also includes three Greek Cinema classics I Soferina, Moderna Stahtopouta and Nomos 4000 starring Greek screen idols Aliki Vougiouklaki, Alekos Alexandrakis and Zoe Laskari.

We hope you enjoy the selection and wish you a good Festival!
