ABOUT THE SOCIETY

At GAFS, our passion for Greek-Australian culture, history and film has driven us to create a platform that celebrates and promotes Greek-Australian cinema. 

The idea for GAFS arose from a personal connection to these interests and a desire to merge them into one cohesive endeavour. We recognise the immense potential of storytelling through film to preserve and showcase the unique experiences of the Greek-Australian community.

At its inception, brainstorming with notable Greek-Australians in the film industry only fuelled our excitement. Articles written for the Neos Kosmos, outlining our creative vision for a Greek-Australian Film Society, received a tremendous reception and garnered widespread appeal.

Encouraged by this response, we began hosting meetings to gauge interest and build our network. Witnessing the growing numbers at each meeting and the overwhelming enthusiasm from fellow Greek-Australians was inspiring. We also reached out to professionals across the globe who shared our passion and offered their support.

In May 2023, we officially incorporated as a non-profit entity under the Greek-Australian Film Society Inc. banner, marking a significant milestone in our journey. With the formal establishment of GAFS, we are committed to realizing our vision of consolidating, highlighting and creating Greek-Australian films that resonate with audiences both now and tomorrow.
