The Greek Film Center is a public benefit non-profit legal entity. It is administratively and financially autonomous and operates in the public interest. It is governed by private law and by the provisions of the 3905/2010 law. The main objective of Greek Film Center is to support and co-produce films of Greek cinematographers. The largest part of the budget is invested in film production.
Particular emphasis is given in supporting the attempts of new filmmakers but in its selections, a special place is reserved for the films of more mature directors who already have a distinguished filmography to their credit. As a result of this activity, it holds an extended movie database and archive ranging during a period of more than a century, from 1908 to 2014.
Greek Film Centre is responsible for a transparent and efficient management film policy implementation in order to support the openness of Greek production through exportability, increase investment from the domestic market and abroad and attract foreign productions and co-productions.
