Los Angeles Greek Film Festival Discovery Days Call for Entries

February 21, 2023

LOS ANGELES – Discovery Days, formerly the International Project Discovery Forum (IPDF), the industry section of the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival (LAGFF) and a Los Angeles pioneer in the promotion of international independent film development, is calling for entries.

Utilizing the innumerable cinematic resources in Los Angeles, the aim of Discovery Days is to create a bridge between two very different worlds – those of American and European independent cinema. The forum takes place June 7-11 and includes a 4-day development lab in Los Angeles with 6-8 selected filmmakers, as well as a series of roundtables, workshops, and masterclasses. For the participating filmmakers, the development lab culminates in an audiovisual presentation by each project’s representative(s) before a jury of film industry professionals.

The extended deadline is March 4.

The LAGFF also has a matching challenge unlocked with a fundraising goal of $1 million by the end of 2023. Funds raised ensure the organization’s future so that they may continue the realization of creative and educational programs which benefit artists and filmmakers, promote Greek culture in the USA, as well as support the Greek film industry. The Los Angeles Greek Film Festival and Global Greek Film Initiative are instituted as a charitable 501c3 organization. Donations are tax deductible.
