    [02] Thessaloniki Film Festival - Three awards for "Last Resort

    19/11/2000 20:28:56

    The 41st Thessaloniki Film Festival (international section) came to a close on Sunday evening with Britain's "Last Resort" film sweeping three major awards.

    Pavel Polikovski's film was chosen as the best and received the Golden Alexandros award (accompanied by 12.5 million drachams).

    Dina Korzun, star of "Last Resort", won the best actress award while the best actor award was shared by Panti Konstin, for his performance in the same film, and Michel Maricevic, for his performance in the German film "Lost Killer".

    The "Silver Alexandros" award went to Dito Tsintsantze's "Lost Killers".

    The best director award went to Iranian Merziech Meskini for her film "The day I became a woman".

    The award ceremony was held at the "Olympion" Cinema.

    [03] Heavy rainfall - Landslide

    19/11/2000 18:01:49

    Severe thunderstorms pounded the eastern Peloponnese and the greater Athens area on Sunday afternoon, with the inclement weather expected to move across much of the eastern mainland of Greece and to the nearby large island of Evia in the early evening.

    Among others, heavy rainfall was blamed for a landslide on the Athens-Corinth national highway that resulted in the death of a 51-year-old woman.

    The victim was riding in passengers side of an automobile that was struck by large boulder on the notoriously steep Kakia Skala stretch of the roadway. Her husband and a six-year-old niece sustained only minor injuries, police said.

    Various other weather-related accidents were reported on the same highway and in the greater Athens area.

    Several soccer games were also called off due to torrential rains, while an indoor basketball match between two first division clubs was interrupted when the court at the coastal Peace and Friendship arena was partially flooded.

    A partial improvement in weather conditions is expected in the late evening.

    [04] Culture Minister - Replaced - Interview

    19/11/2000 16:04:21

    Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis replaced Culture Minster Theodoros Pangalos on Sunday, the same day as a front-page interview by the latter -- bannered in an Athens mass daily -- expressed disagreement with certain government policies, including labour market reforms.

    The outspoken Pangalos, a former foreign minister, will be

    replaced on by veteran ruling PASOK cadre Evangelos Venizelos, who in the past also held the culture portfolio, along with development and justice posts, among others.
