The Greek Film Centre (GFC) is an institution which enjoys financial and administrative independence, operates in the public interest and is supervised by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism. The GFC's sources of finance are its yearly subsidy from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and revenues from a tax return on cinema admissions. The majority of the GFC's funds are allocated for the production, promotion and exploitation of Greek films with emphasis on first and second films.
Through its international arm, Hellas Film, the GFC participates in all of the leading European programmes that aim to promote and sell European films worldwide. The organisation is present at all major festivals and film markets and makes its films available for festival screenings all over the world.
The GFC's support of Greek films extends beyond co-productions to all Greek films seeking international recognition, on the festival circuit or commercially.
The Greek Film Centre is one of the 10 founding members of EFP.
