Emperors Palace presents first ever Greek film festival this March


03 February 2011


Emperors Palace is excited to announce that it is hosting its first-ever Greek Film Festival. In association with The Lyceum Club of Greek Women under the auspices of the Greek Embassy of South Africa and assisted by the Federation of Hellenic Communities and Societies, the entertainment resort will be hosting a three-day Greek Film Festival at Nu Metro Emperors Palace from 1 to 3 March 2011.

The Greek Film Festival will showcase some of the most recent and popular Greek films and launches on Tuesday, 1 March with the blockbuster success, "Nisos" featuring Costa Voutsa and Eleni Kastani.  Nisos has wowed Greek audiences around the world with its story of scandalous affairs, unsolved crimes and hidden double lives.

The festival continues with the re-make of the classic "O Ilias tou 16ou" (Policeman of the 16th Precinct) on Wednesday, 2 March. This hugely popular film will have the audience in stitches and stars Petros Filippides in the lead role. "Molis Xorisa" will see the closing of the festival on Thursday, 3 March and this sensational movie, starring Zeta Makripoulia, will have audiences begging for more. 

The festival aims to unite the Hellenic Communities of South Africa by showcasing high quality movies, as well as assisting the Greek Sporting Club in raising funds for the refurbishment of its premises.  This festival has received immense support from the Federation of Hellenic Communities as well as the Greek Embassy of South Africa, who will be hosting a Greek Business and Tourism Expo at Emperors Palace during the three-day film festival.

Evie Eleftheriadis from the Lyceum Club of Greek Women says, "Emperors Palace has been immensely supportive of this project and with the incredible assistance of their Marketing team the Greek Film Festival will undoubtedly prove to be successful".
