  • [01] Thessaloniki film festival awards

    The key provisions of a draft law aimed at the modernisation and development of Greek-language cinema were outlined by Culture Minister Michalis Liapis, who spoke during the State Quality Awards ceremony held at the conclusion of the 49th Thessaloniki Film Festival late Monday night. Referring to the Greek Screenplay Institute, he stated that it will soon be established, while he also announced tax breaks in the form of incentives for more investments in the local film industry. Two films, "Without" and "Sklavi Sta Desma Tous" (Slaves and their bonds) by directors Alexandros Avranas and Toni Likouresis, respectively, swept the prizes awarded in the festival's Greek competition section, winning six and 10 awards, respectively. The best documentary award was garnered by "The Night Fernando Pessoa Met Constantine Cavafy", by Stelios Charalambopoulos, while the short film prize went to Josephine Markarian for her film "Partners".
