The 10th annual Los Angeles Greek Festival will honor Twentieth Century Fox Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos during its annual Orpheus Awards ceremony at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on June 5.
Gianopulos joins previously announced Orpheus honoree, Academy Award-winning actor J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), who stars in in the fest’s closing night film, Christopher Papakaliatis’ “Worlds Apart”, the highest grossing Greek film since 2009.
Additionally, fest director Aris Katopodis disclosed the names of the nine jurors of the 2016 event. The jury members will determine which of the fest’s 50 films will receive Orpheus Awards in the categories of short film, documentary, feature film, and performance. (RTRS)
