Yannis S. Costopoulos Scholarships
The J. F. Costopoulos Foundation Award
In 2019, the J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, instituted The J.F. Costopoulos Foundation Award in the context of the Thessaloniki Film Festival.
The prize is awarded, upon the recommendation of a special three-member panel, to a film from the Greek section that premieres at the Festival. The film should present a comprehensive proposition, promote the art of cinema and demonstrate its affinities with other art forms. The Award is accompanied by an artwork created by visual artist Daphne Costopoulos, Vice-Chair of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
