My Name is Eftyhia – Greek International Film Festival, Tour of Canada – Sunday October 1 at 2:30pm!
The story of songwriter Eftyhia Papagiannopoulou, (1893-1972) who escaped the burning of Smyrna in Asia Minor and journeyed to Athens, Greece, where she became a major figure in Greek popular music and the beloved lyricist of the country. The film draws inspiration from the passions and weaknesses of Eftyhia’s exuberant personality and unconventional character, which are reflected in her lyrics – some of the greatest and most timeless Greek hits. Greek with English subtitles. Presented by the Parnassos Cultural Society of Ottawa.

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
