Australia's Greek Film Festival is rolling back into town with its latest lineup of contemporary and classic cinema from the Mediterranean nation. Presented by Delphi Bank, this year's program features a wide selection of comedies, dramas, documentaries and shorts, as well as a career retrospective of one of Greece's most iconic stars.

The festival gets under way with opening night film Alex and Eve, a local production filmed in Sydney's inner west about a Greek Australian man who falls in love with a Lebanese Muslim woman — much to the chagrin of his Greek Orthodox family. Other standouts include Athenian gangster flick Wednesday 04:45, romantic drama Riverbanks and father-son road trip movie Magic Men.

Audiences in Sydney and Melbourne will also be treated to a survey of the films of '60s bombshell Aliki Vougiouklaki’s, including risqué rom-com Ace of Spades and escapist musical Lady and the Tramp.
