The multi-awarded film, Unfair World as well as Wasted Youth, Sayome, Riders of Pylos, Super Dimitrios, Three Days Happiness, Tungsten and Raw Material, among others that will be screened in Linwood Dunn and Egyptian Theaters.
Thus a wider range of audience gets familiarized with the work of a new wave of directors. 
The festival, founded by Ersi Danou and Ageliki Giannakopoulou, aims  in the promotion of Greek cinema, bringing the gap between Greek filmmakers and Hollywood by cultural exchanges.

Apart from the screenings, the festival will hold a creative workshop about the relation between screenwriting and editing. Michael Economou, over-viewing the Masters Course he teaches at the USC School of Cinema, will examine the similarities and how key editing principals can be used for screenplay writing as well.

The special event of LAGFF will be a two-part tribute to Theo Angelopoulos, the great filmmaker died suddenly on a road accident on January 24th 2012. 
On the last day of the festival in Linwood Theater, Fred Linch, film historian and instructor, will coordinate a panel discussion with friends and collaborators of Theo Angelopoulos. Film clips showing the directors unique point of view will be included in the discussion, followed by the screening of Ulysses Gaze
