Our Story

Until 2007, when LAGFF was launched, there was virtually no Greek presence in Hollywood...

Our primary goal was and is to represent Greek cinema, culture and the new generation of Greek filmmakers from Greece, Cyprus and around the world in the creative capital of the world and to build a bridge of opportunity.

We also seek to cultivate a two-way education; so that Americans may gain a sense of the new Greek artistic visions, and may be exposed to cinematic gems which would not otherwise be accessible to them; and so that Greek filmmakers may have the opportunity to meet and network with American industry profes- sionals, observe and learn about the creative processes and structures of the American film industry.

My screenplay adaptation of FIRE ON THE ISLAND is a semifinalist in the Creative World Awards international screenplay competition (thriller category). It previously won Best Indie screenplay in WriteMovies contest. Read the book before someone makes the movie! Set in Greece.
Pls check out the 1st review of Fire on the Island in the Greek media. “An engaging summer read for the travel-deprived”— Athens Insider. Publishers Weekly adds: “Smith offers the perfect blend of intrigue, romance, and travelogue.” Set on the island of Lesvos.
