Greek Student Short Film Festival to return to Sydney after two years


The Student Film Festival is returning to Sydney after two years due to COVID-19 restrictions to offer students the opportunity to use the Greek language in creative and innovative ways, whilst simultaneously encouraging the maintenance of the Greek culture.

The topic for this year’s competition is ‘Returning’ to our life – to ourselves – to our roots – to our family -to our home – to our country – to school – to love – to security – to normality – to peace – to our friends…

Participants were encouraged to interpret the topic as creatively as they wish.

This year’s signature item, which must be included in each film, will be a spinning top toy.

The films will be screened at the 2022 Greek Film Festival on Sunday, October 23 at 12.30pm at Leichhardt’s Palace Norton Street Cinema, where prizes will be awarded to the students. Free Entry.

The Greek Film Festival, presented by the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW and the Greek Festival of Sydney, runs from Thursday, October 13 to Sunday, October 23. Screenings will be at Palace Norton Street, 99 Norton Street, Leichhardt, NSW, 2040.
