Virtual LAGFF Extended to October 21 Due to Popular Demand

Orpheus Awards Hosts Christos Vasilopoulos and Chryssa Loucas

The Los Angeles Greek Film Festival, which was scheduled to end on October 15, is extending its 2020 run to October 21 due to popular demand, as requests for passes and tickets have surpassed all expectations.

Aris Katopodis, the Festival Director, made the executive decision to extend the festival after fielding many requests from audience members to see a greater number of the feature films and shorts available online.

The 14th annual LA Greek Film Festival, whose fate remained uncertain for a while due to the global pandemic and ban on large gatherings, decided to go virtual for the first time ever. Judging by the festival’s popularity this year, that seems to have been a great move.

Making the festival a virtual event enabled people to not only access the festival films safely, but also enabled people in Greece, Cyprus, and throughout the world who might not have otherwise been able to attend the festival in-person to view the film catalog online.

If you still have plenty of LAGFF films you haven’t seen, check them out this next week on the festival website!
