SF Greek Film Festival Closing Night Reception

October 20, 2018
5:30 pm
Dolby Cinema at 1275 Market

Closing Night of the San Francisco Greek Film Festival includes screenings of the short film GOLDFISH and feature film POLYXENI, Greece's selection for Best Foreign Film for the Oscars. Director Dora Masklavanou is expected to be in attendance for a Q&A. Join us before the screening for a reception in the atrium. The festival is pleased to present the first-ever Spyros P. Skouras Lifetime Achievement Award to Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos. The award was created to honor outstanding film industry professionals of Greek descent. The award’s namesake, Spyros Skouras, was a giant in the movie industry, an international cultural ambassador, and a humanitarian. At the helm of Twentieth Century Fox (1942-1962), he introduced widescreen movies with the CinemaScope lens, reinvigorating the movie-going experience in the advent of television. He also led the Greek War Relief Association during WWII, lifting a British naval blockade so that food and medicine could make it to a starving, war-torn nation. Skouras is considered one of the most prominent Americans of Greek descent. There is a limited amount parking in the Dolby garage at 35 9th Street. Taking public transportation or a taxi is strongly encouraged. If taking a taxi, get driving directions to 35 9th Street. Tickets will likely sell out, so purchase your tickets in advance.
