We are pleased to announce that this year’s New York City Greek Film Festival will run from October 17th until October 23rd at the French Institute Alliance (FIAF) located in the heart of Manhattan.
The 2019 NYCGFF celebrates its 13th year with a record 50 feature length and short films. The line-up will include films with narratives and themes that will resonate with Greek American and International audiences. This year, for the first time ever, the Festival will introduce a new selection of films from emerging, international voices who have produced films around topics of Greek interest. Additionally, this year marks the launch of an online edition of the Festival, featuring international short films from around the world.
The Festival will kick off with a retrospective tribute to Alexander the Great as part of the opening night ceremonies. This exceptional exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Hellenic Institute for Byzantine and Postbyzantine Studies of Venice and includes a presentation in various digital applications of a unique byzantine manuscript of the 14th c. kept in the museum of the Institute. It consists the richest medieval manuscript of the world which depicts Alexander the Great’s Life and Exploits in 250 miniatures. The digital exhibition will offer to its visitors a unique experience to explore the life of the great Hellenic Macedonian king and ruler of the hellenistic oecoumene.
The exhibition will also include a display of eight Alexander the Great-themed engravings carved by prominent artists from the “XOTARIS” gallery.
A memorable closing night will include a musical performance by female Greek New Yorkers that will sing songs of empowerment written by renowned Greek composers. This musical ensemble will be directed by notable jazz pianist and composer, Glafkos Kontemeniotis, and is dedicated to women who have suffered abuse in modern society.
We look forward to welcoming you to this year’s Festival!
