Co-edited by Dr Lydia Papadimitriou (Film Studies, Liverpool John Moores University) and Dr Yannis Tzioumakis (Communications and Media, University of Liverpool), the first collection of essays on Greek cinema to be published in English, Greek Cinema: Texts, Histories, Identities (Intellect) was successfully launched last week at King’s College, London.

Co-hosted by the Department of Film Studies and the Centre of Hellenic Studies at King’s College, the event was very well received by a sizeable audience. Presentations by the two editors were followed by brief talks by three of the contributors, and a very lively Q&A session.

The collection covers Greek cinema from the silent era to the present and examines it as an aesthetic, cultural and political phenomenon with the potential to appeal to a diverse range of audiences.
