2011 Greek Student Film Festival Awards

The 2nd Greek Student Film Festival in Melbourne was completed in all success with over 40 entries from students learning the Modern Greek language all around Australia.

The event was a collaborative effort between the Greek Orthodox Communities of Melbourne and Victoria, the Antipodes Festival and the Education Office of the Consulate General of Greece in Melbourne with the support of the Victorian state government’s Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

The 20 best entries were screened on October 30 at Como cinemas in South Yarra, where students, parents and friends of the participants overwhelmed the place and warmly applauded everyone’s effort.
