The festival will screen Greek movies such as “An Evening with Filmmaker Vassilis Loules,” “Lela Karayanni: The Fragrance of a Heroine,” “The Noose” and “The Vougiouklaki Phenomenon.”

The New York City Greek Film Festival states, “We hope that New Yorkers will avail themselves of the relatively rare opportunity to see Greek films by coming to the festival and discovering for themselves the work of fresh and exciting new talents.”
