Cinema is in your hands!

What is Gros Plan:

See, vote and award the best film!

The audience selected for the screenings watched the film premieres, rated the films and awarded the best film by filling out a questionnaire after the end of the film screenings.

Cinema is in your hands!

The results of these evaluations will then be publicized to the Greek film distributors and film festival organisers with the utmost goal that these films acquire distribution in Greece, thus granting the audience the chance to shape the local film trends!
