Yorgos Lantimos’ new film, Alps, is set to premiere in competition at the 68th Venice International Film Festival. It stars Aggeliki Papoulia, Ariane Labed and Aris Servetalis and was co-written by Lanthimos and Efthymis Filippou. Ariane Labed has played in Attenberg (2010) and was awarded the Coppa Volpi for the Best Actress at the 67th Venice International Film Festival.
The 68th annual Venice Film Festival is scheduled to take place from 31 August to 10 September 2011.

At the same time, The Guardian of August 27, 2011, hosts a very interesting article by Steve Rose about the contemporary Greek cinema in the shadow of the financial crisis.
Particular reference is made to Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth and Athina Rachel Tsangari’s Attenberg. The two Greek filmmakers talk about their influences and inspirations. They also describe the difficulties they meet while trying to make cinema in their home country. 
In the article that has the title “The weird wave of Greek cinema” there is also information about the films “Wasted Youth” by Argyris Papadimitropoulos and Jan Vogel (whichwas loosely inspired by the real-life shooting of an Athens teenager which sparked the 2008 riots), Strella by Panos Koutras (where anex-convict and a transsexual form an unorthodox family unit) and Knifer by Yiannis Ekonomides (a tough but artful study of middle-class desperation)
