PROGRAM OF FILMS AND EVENTS
The Greek Film Festival in Berlin will raise the curtain for the 9th time at Babylon, on March 20-24th, 2024.
More mature, crossing the borders of Berlin and travelling to other German cities,
the festival is mainly oriented towards promoting and presenting emerging filmmakers from Greece and Cyprus in Germany.
The festival will present a rich, timely program, featuring the best new films these two countries have to offer.
This year’s motto We choose the bloody BIG screen plays with the word bloody: metaphorically insisting on the big screen with determination and love,
but also literally due to this year’s highlight of the festival (horror films, bloody horror – a genre with numerous fans) containing selections that border on cult.
A total of thirty films – fiction, documentaries, shorts and special screenings – will be spread over the five days of the festival with repeats,
in order to provide the public with a wider opportunity to book tickets for their desired films.
With 5 international premieres, 16 German premieres and 7 Berlin premieres, the festival will offer a new spectacle to its viewers.

About the Festival
The Greek Film Festival in Berlin is Berlin’s Greek film festival founded as Hellas Filmbox Berlin in 2015. The festival offers German and international audiences a unique chance to watch the best of new Greek cinema (or related to Greece) on the big screen. We show 35 to 40 fiction films, documentaries, and shorts, most of which are German or International premieres.
The five-day event takes place every March at the historic Babylon venue in the heart of Berlin. With the attendance of filmmakers, producers, distinguished Jury members, film professionals, artists, and by organizing parallel events, discussions, exhibitions, and networking happenings, the festival has become one of the leading film events in the city. Special thanks go out to our amazing and growing festival audience. The German-Greek Cultural Association organizes the festival.
The German-Greek Cultural Association was founded by German and Greek initiators in Berlin in April 2015 with the aim of supporting and strengthening Greek-German relations through cultural projects like Hellas Filmbox Berlin (2016- 2019), The Greek Film Festival in Berlin (2020 – today), The Greek Film Festival Goes Frankfurt, The Greek Film Festival goes Köln (currently).
The initiators of the German-Greek Cultural Association were artists Asteris Kutulas and Ina Kutulas.
Currently, on the Association’s Board of Directors are Sofia Stavrianidou (Festival Director) and Elisa Deftos (Marketing Manager).
