Hellenic Film Academy, 2014 Awards Nominations

On April the 14th, the Hellenic Film Academy (HFA) will host its annual Awards Ceremony, honoring last year’s best Greek productions. Taking place at the Onassis Cultural Centre (OCC), the event is being held for the 5th time, while a quick look at the nominations announced shows one or two clear favorites.

Pantelis Voulgaris’ Little England captivated the local audience and so did with the nominations, reaching lucky number 13. With 3 less, The Enemy Within by Yorgos Tsemberopoulos, followed by Alexandros Avranas’ Miss Violence with 8 and Penny Panagiotopoulou’s September with 6 nominations.

“20 feature, 12 documentaries and 24 short films is the number in total”, HFA’s President, Vasilis Katsoufis said before thanking the Greek filmmakers for keeping doing films on “these hard times”. 

The Nova Honorary Award, given by the event’s big sponsor Nova to renowned Greek filmmakers of the diaspora, this year goes to Costas Gavras.
