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.
