{mosimage}Under the joint Patronage of the Ministers of Culture of Lebanon and Greece, Mr. Salim Wardy and Mr. Pavlos Geroulanos, and with the support of the Embassy of Greece in Beirut,  the third Greek Film Festival, organized by the League of Lebanese Graduates from Greek Universities (LLGGU), in collaboration with the Greek Film Center (GFC) and the Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts (ALBA), will be launched, on Wednesday November 10th and last until Saturday November 13th, at “Cinema Metropolis Empire, Sofil”.
On the sidelines of the Festival, the director of the opening feature film “A Touch of Spice” (original title “Polítiki Kouzina”), Tassos Boulmetis, will participate in a round table with cinema professionals and students of the audiovisual arts at ALBA University - Sin El Fil, on Wednesday, November 10, at 16:00 hrs.
This year, the movies that have been selected deal with a critical approach, with problems faced by a modern society, such as xenophobia and the difficulty to accept the otherness or political clientelism. And we believe that the case of Fanis, in “A Touch of Spice”, who gets dragged beyond his will into the turbulences of history with no possibility of changing their course, will interest the average Lebanese viewer who also feels sometimes overwhelmed by developments he cannot control. Aspects of modern day reality are examined through a fresh look by a younger generation of directors such as Christos Nikoleris and Vanessa Zouganeli.

The program comprises three short and three full-length films, subtitled in English or French, and is scheduled as follows:
