LOS ANGELES – Artistic and Festival Director Aristotle Katopodis has announced the 14th Annual Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) will be held on October 1-15, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LAGFF will run on-line and on-demand only. The virtual component allows this year’s Festival to reach a global audience. “With over 50 features, shorts, docs and animated films, LAGFF 2020 is one of the largest on-line Greek Film Festivals in the world. And, many films are making their North American, U.S. and West Coast premieres,” explains Katopodis.

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 filmmakers and Hollywood.

Several Masterclass webinars will be conducted by entertainment industry leaders including Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Paramount Pictures Jim Gianopulos, Emmy Award-winning director Greg Yaitanes, and actress-producer Nia Vardalos.

LAGFF2020 is held in collaboration with The UCLA Stavros Niarchos Foundation Center for the Study of Hellenic Culture. Presenting sponsors are the Greek National Tourism Organization and Onassis USA.
