2023 Greek Film Festival set to open its doors in Adelaide on October 24


The 2023 Greek Film Festival, presented by the Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia (GOCSA), returns to Adelaide from 24 – 29 October at the Palace Nova Cinemas in Prospect.

This year’s festival, with eight films over six days, promises to be a captivating cinematic journey that
will transport you to the heart of Greek culture, history, and creativity, all while celebrating the rich
and diverse world of Greek cinema.

“Cinema can transport us to different worlds, evoke emotions, and shed light on diverse stories. It is a
medium through which we can explore our rich Greek heritage, history, and its influence on our lives
here in South Australia,” GOCSA President, Peter Gardiakos, said.

“This festival is a testament to our commitment to preserving and sharing our culture, showcasing films that capture the essence of our identity, history and traditions.”

Headlining the Festival is the film Behind the Haystacks, a social drama written and directed by Asimina Proedrou that unfolds during the 2015 refugee crisis on the northern borders of Greece.

Tickets for the Opening Night are available online at palacenova.com.au or in person at the Palace
Nova Cinema box offices and are $40. Prices for general festival sessions are $25 for adults and $20
