Russian capital city Moscow will host a Greek Cinema Week until April 1, organised by local municipal authorities (“Moscow Cino”) and the city’s Hellenic Cultural Centre.
The Greek Cinema Week events are hosted within the framework of the “Cinema of Friends” forum offering a unique opportunity to the public to become familiar with the best examples of classical Greek cinema and many promising new filmmakers.
Parallel events include an exhibition of works by Russian painters having Greece as a main theme (“Greece under the Perspective of Russian Painters”) to be inaugurated at Moscow’s historical cinema theatre “Hudozhestvennyi”.
The public will also have the opportunity to taste Grecian cuisine, watch folk dances performed by the centre’s dance troupe and attend a musical concert.
The festival was opened on March 26 with the film “Little Dolphins of the Amvrakikos Bay” of N. Dimopoulos and A. Sideratos (1994).
