Hellenic Film Academy Awards 2015 - Xenia gets Best Feature Film
31 March 2015
share info
Panos H. Koutras΄ Xenia got away with 6 awards in total, (including Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Feature Film) at the Hellenic Film Academy΄s awards ceremony, last night in Athens. Stratos by Yannis Economides received 4 awards, so did Yannis Veslemes΄ first feature film, Norway. Vangelis Mourikis΄ performance on Stratos earned him the Best Male Award, while the Best Female ended in the hands of Maria Kallimani for her role in At Home by Athanasios Karanikolas.

One of the evening΄s highlights though, was something else. Going to the podium to receive his Best Screenplay Award along with his screenwriter Panos Evangelidis, Panos H. Koutras stated that he will not take the award with him because "life is unequal and unfair, that΄s why we will not receive the award. We΄ll leave it here, all due respect to HFA, and take it when in this country passes a law granting citizenship to second generation immigrants" – Xenia΄s protagonists are of Albanian origin. 

Beside the incident mentioned above, Peter Sellers΄ bombing the screen at the start of the ceremony (a homage to Blake Edwards΄ The Party) and special guest Fanny Ardant praising Greece, modern and ancient, there were films and professionals to honor, and here they are:
