The Hellenic Film Commission of the Greek Film Centre and ΕΚΟΜΕ represented Greece with great success by sharing a digital stand at FOCUS – The Meeting Place for International Production 2020 (15-17 December). Representatives of the Hellenic Film Commission and EKOME connected and had virtual meetings with film professionals from around the world sharing information on filming opportunities offered in Greece (incentives, locations, safety protocols, infrastructure etc.).
Our presentation FILMING IN GREECE AGAINST ALL ODDS, was broadcast during FOCUS on December 16th with enormous success (over 100 attendees). Venia Vergou (Hellenic Film Commission), Vasiliki Diagouma (EKOME), Erik Hemmendroff (Plattform Produktion), Kostas Kefalas (Faliro House Productions), coordinated by Chris Vourlias (Variety), discussed about the filming environment in Greece as well as two high profile international productions which wrapped filming in Greece in autumn 2020: Ruben Östlund’s “The Triangle of Saddness” and Maggie Gyllenhaal’s “The Lost Daughter”.
