Alexis Grivas, the former (till few days ago) Eurimages representative in Greece, is back at Greek Film Center (GFC), this time as Head of the Board. A man of knowledge and International experience, Grivas was expelled from his position as the Greek representative of EU’s fund programme as a result of a decision made by a headless Board of Directors, causing numerous reactions by Greek film industry associations as well the local press since last weekend. 

GFC΄s new President

Reacting from his part to this decision, the newly appointed Deputy Minister of Culture, Nikos Xydakis, asked for the Board’s immediate resignation, giving to Alexis Grivas the Greek Film Center’s Presidency. The (now) former Board released a press statement condemning Xydakis’ action, and starting a war of words and accusations.

Cinematographer in a number of Greek feature films and documentaries, Programme Advisor of Guadalajara International Film Festival in Mexico, a representative of both Greece and Mexico at the Berlinale, and in charge of Thessaloniki Film Festival’s foreign press, to name few of his former credentials, Grivas is about to lead a totally new Board of Directors, with filmmaker and academic Eva Stefani as its new Vice-Precident.

Actress Olia Lazaridou, cinematographer Yannis Daskalothanassis, writer and publisher Kostas Livieratos, editor Υorgos Mavropsaridis and film critic Kostas Terzis will be the Board’s new Members.
