Εuropa Distribution continues its tour around Europe, in order to shed some light on the situation of independent film distribution across the continent. After their recent articles on countries such as Russia and Lithuania, Iceland and the UK, they headed south to report on the individual aspects of the Greek market, and the challenges faced by its professionals. The members of Europa Distribution operating in the Hellenic Republic offered a common portrait of a highly competitive market, which has undergone significant changes due to the impact of the last economic crisis in 2008. A large number of releases, a great sensitivity to the weather, a limited amount of windows and a constant search for new business models are just some of the main traits of the film distribution market in Greece.
