About the Festival
The Greek Film Festival in Berlin is Berlin’s Greek film festival founded as Hellas Filmbox Berlin in 2015. The festival gives the German and international audience the unique chance to watch on the big screen the best of the new Greek film (and/or related with Greece).
The festival takes place every March in the heart of Berlin and the historic venue of Babylon. With the presence of filmmakers, producers, distinguished Jury members, film professionals, artists and organising discussions, exhibitions, installations and happenings, the festival is one of the leading film events in the city. Special thanks to the amazing and devoted festival audience.
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- 2020) and The Greek Film Festival in Berlin (currently).
Festival initiators were artists Asteris Kutulas and Ina Kutulas and co-founder was actress Sandra von Ruffin.
On the board of the association currently are Eva Micropoulou and Elisa Deftos.
