The Hellenic Community of Western Australia and the Greek Film Festival Committee of Perth are excited to announce the Greek Film Festival for 2018!

Two of Greece's latest films are to be showcased on our screens in November and December, giving Perth audiences the chance to witness some of Greece's latest talent in film making. 

The Last Note (15+)

Four years after the cinematic tour de force that was Little England (GFF 2014), acclaimed director Pantelis Voulgaris reunites with screenwriter Ioanna Karystiani to present The Last Note, a gripping historical drama based on true events.

Napoleon Soukatzidis (Andreas Konstantinou, former guest of GFF for Little England) is an inmate of the Nazi’s Chaidari concentration camp, and interpreter for its ‘Kommondant’, Karl Fischer (André Hennicke). When news reaches Chaidari that a Greek resistance ambush in Laconia claimed the life of a high-ranking German official and his escorts, Fischer orders 200 inmates be executed. One of those inmates is Soukatzidis.

But then, on Labour Day, 1944, Fischer offers Soukatzidis both an opportunity and a conundrum: he can nominate another prisoner to take his place, and thus be spared death.

Awarded Best Actor at this year’s Hellenic Film Academy Awards, Konstantinou’s standout performance is one of many highlights in Voulgaris’ epic chronicle of one of the most significant moments of modern Greek history.

Jamaica (15+)

From the small to big screen, highly credentialled TV director Andreas Morfonios makes his film directorial debut with this crowd-pleasing ‘dramedy’ about two very different brothers.

In what would appear to be life imitating art, Morfonios introduces us to the high-flying television presenter Timos (Fanis Mouratidis) who is living life to the full. On the other hand, his brother, Akis (Spiros Papadopoulos), is a taxi driver struggling to make ends meet. While they may have been close as children, the brothers have now drifted apart, their divergent paths taking them on very separate journeys.

But then a family tragedy strikes, and the polar-opposite siblings are reunited and, with it, they are forced to set aside their fraternal enmity. Reluctantly, they confront the events of the past that initially forced them apart sewing the seeds of lingering resentments.

Nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Fanis Mouratidis) and Best Original Score at the 2018 Hellenic Film Academy Awards, as well as a Best Film nomination at the 2018 Los Angeles Greek Film Festival, the incongruously titled Jamaica is a heartwarming, humorous treatise on the sweeping power of sibling love.
