The 19th Greek Film Festival opened its national run on Oct. 16 at Palace Norton Street cinemas to a complete sell-out crowd with over 500 people gathering to see Sydney’s premiere screening of Antonis Aggelopoulos’ Nisos 2. A third cinema was added to accommodate the demand of what was a great start of the 19th Greek Film Festival.
“The feedback from the audience has been great and everyone I have spoken to are really impressed with this year’s line-up. We have put together a stand-out program and what a great way to start what we are expecting to be our biggest film festival to date. Already we are adding 2nd cinemas to select screenings” said Nia Karteris, Chair of the Greek Festival of Sydney.
Following the sell-out screening, the atmosphere was electric as the party continued in the Martini Bar at Palace Cinemas with a flavorsome canapé menu provided by George’s Mediterranean Bar and Grill, and drinks by Premium Beverages and Wild Fox wines. The duo John Anastasiadis and Michael contributed to the entertainment with a great selection of Greek music.
Nisos 2 is screening again on Friday, Oct. 19, now on sale at 2nd cinema; Sunday, Oct.28 and Saturday, Nov. 3. Tickets are selling fast.
