After the screening, artistic director Aris Katopodis announced that, “This year we were proud to host over 42 filmmakers and 35 films from around the world.  We were entertained, moved and inspired as we watched their visions unfold on the screen of the Egyptian Theatre and we thank them for sharing their stories with us.” Katopodis went on to say “LAGFF has reached a milestone with an attendance that boasted a double digit rise in patronage. Our industry program – International Project Discovery Program, under Araceli Lemos and producer Giulia Caruso's guidance continues to grow in popularity and this year’s public pitching session was a huge success.”  Katopodis went on to say that “Thanks to the support of our sponsors, media sponsors, co-founders Ersi Danou and Angeliki Giannakopoulos the Festival will continue  to bring entertaining and thought provoking stories from Greek and Cypriot filmmakers worldwide to Los Angeles.  With your continued support, we look forward to celebrating the end of our first decade in 2016. We invite everyone here to join us here for the 10th Annual Los Angeles Greek Film Festival in June of 2016.” He then invited Orpheus Award Producer Dorothea Paschalidou to the podium to introduce the evening’s Awards host Swiss-born Greek megastar Panos Mouzourakis.
