Greek Film Festival coming to Sydney and Melbourne in October 2023




The 2023 Greek Film Festival returns to Australian screens from 19 to 29 October with a selection of exciting new and classic films from the storied world of Greek cinema.

The 2023 iteration of the festival opens on 19 October with the award-winning feature film by Asimina Proedrou, “Behind the Haystacks.”

Described by Screen International as an “intense psychological study of murky morality” the film stars Stathis Stamatopoulos, Eleni Ouzounidou, Evgenia Lavda & Paschalis Tsarouhas.

Greek Film Festival will open with ‘Behind the Haystacks’ by Asimina Proedrou.

“Behind the Haystacks” is set during the refugee crisis of 2015 as seen through the eyes of three morally culpable family members with overlapping and contradictory versions of the same experience.

“Behind the Haystacks” leads a jam-packed program of award-winning features, celebrated documentaries and a tribute to the late great Irini Papa. Full program details will follow in the coming weeks.

The 2023 Greek Film Festival will play in Melbourne and Sydney from 19 – 29 October.  It is presented by the Greek Community of Melbourne and the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW through the Palace Cinemas group.

The Opening Night of the 2023 Greek Film Festival will play at The Astor Theatre and Palace Cinema Como in Melbourne and at Palace Norton Street in Leichardt, Sydney.
