The Los Angeles Greek Film Festival kicked off with a star studded red carpet gala on June 25th, at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Actors, directors and producers of Greek descent gathered at the festival which promotes Greek cinema and culture in the capital of the entertainment industry. Among the attendees were Alexi Georgoulis who recently starred in “My Life in Ruins”, Greek music sensation Kalomoira, veteran actor John Aniston and other celebrities. The festival opened with the movie “Small Crime”. Directed by Christos Georgiou and starring Aris Servetalis and Viki Papadopoulou, the charming comedy is about a frustrated young policeman who has just been assigned duty on a beautiful but ragged Greek island in the Aegean. There he discovers murder, mystery and love.
The event will continue with daily movie screenings and panel discussions. The festival will close on Sunday with the Orpheus Award presentation.
