The Delphi Bank 21st Greek Film Festival wrapped up over the weekend after nearly two months of outstanding Greek cinema across 5 major Australian cities.
For the first time in 2014, the Greek-Australian Short Film Festival awarded Best Short Film in two categories: Best Australian Short and Best International Short, with each winner collecting a cash prize of $1000.
Stephen Kanaris' Maiden (pictured), set in Brisbane's outer suburbs in the late '70s, won Best Australian Short. The story of battling greyhound trainer Mick, who is desperate to give his family a better life, it explores a place where machismo still flourishes, and the accepted ideas of what it is to be a man are harsh and unforgiving.
Spiros Charalambous' Anna, filmed in dramatic black and white, won Best International Short. Set in a Cypriot village, the film tells the story of the elderly Michalis and his obsession with the lead female character in a daytime soap opera.
Sydney and Melbourne audiences, this is your final chance to check out this year's festival favourites.
