Renos Haralambidis

Master Class with Award-Winning Greek Filmmaker
Renos Haralambidis

Acclaimed Greek filmmaker Renos Haralambidis will teach a Master Class to aspiring filmmakers and film students Friday, October 13 at 11am at the historic Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) in Manhattan. The award-winning director, actor, and writer is in New York for a retrospective of his films at the prestigious Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, NY, October 13—15.

In the class, Renos will discuss strategies for working with actors, film crews, and directing yourself, among other topics, including his personal reflections on how art impacts our lives. To maximize the class experience, attendees are asked to watch this behind-the-scenes film about the making of Renos’ film “The Heart of the Beast.”

The Renos retrospective pays tribute to one of Greece’s true auteur directors whose life’s work is his art. Renos represents the best of Greek cinema with his personal reflections on modern Athenian life at the core of each of his films. The four films showcased in the retrospective represent an important period in the development of modern Greek cinema. Renos is currently completing his fifth feature film, The Night Announcer, which will be released in 2024.

The Master Class and Renos retrospective are part of the Hellenic Film Society’s New York Greek Film Expo, presented October 5-15 in theaters in the New York metro area. Programming includes, in addition to the retrospective, screenings of the latest Greek films, and a series of panel discussions, talks, and receptions.

The Master Class is free of charge, but registration is required. RSVP at by Wednesday, October 11.
