IMO WORLD MARITIME DAY
THURSDAY, September 26, 2019


The World Maritime Day theme for the year is "Empowering Women in the Maritime Community".

This provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of gender equality, in line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, and to highlight the important - yet under-utilized - contribution of women within the maritime sector.

The theme gives IMO the opportunity to work with various maritime stakeholders towards achieving the SDGs, particularly SDG 5, to foster an environment in which women are identified and selected for career development opportunities in maritime administrations, ports and maritime training institutes and to encourage more conversation for gender equality in the maritime space.

Empowering women fuels thriving economies across the world, spurs growth and development, and benefits everyone working in the global maritime community in the drive towards safe, secure, clean and sustainable shipping.

NYC GREEK FILM FESTIVAL
THURSDAY, October 17-WEDNESDAY, October 23, 2019


PLACE: Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street, New York, NY 10022

The NEW YORK CITY GREEK FILM FESTIVAL has the pleasure of announcing, to the readers of the National Herald and to all Greeks of the state of New York, the dates of its upcoming edition: October 17th to October 23d, 2019. The lavish program, which is comprised of more than 40 films, a record number for the 13 year-old institution, will unfold at FiaF’s welcoming venues, in the heart of Manhattan.

It is worth noting that this year, apart from the Greek features, documentaries and shorts, the festival launches a new section with international productions of Greek interest -meaning films with Greek elements no matter the country of their origin. Furthermore, a purely international section of short films from all over the world will be introduced, at the online edition of NYCGRFF only.

The festival has also the honor of presenting, in collaboration with notable Greek archeologists and in world premiere, a digital exhibition of listings from the sublime history of world’s greatest Greek of all times: Alexander the Great. An expo already sheltered at the Greek Institute of Venice.

In the 14th century, Alexios Komninos, the emperor of Trabzon, commissions a manuscript with Alexander the Great’ s recounting of events for his private library. Compiled by the era’s most able copyists, the manuscript is also enriched with 250 miniatures narrating the entire life course of the magnificent warrior.

The main goal of this unique initiative is to showcase the Macedonian ruler who spread the Greek spirit and the Greek culture throughout the then known world, to portray the man who was loved and honored like no other Greek. Within this context, an exhibition of Alexander the Great-themed engravings, carved by important artists from “XOTARIS” Gallery, will also take place.

In addition, this year’s festival has also organized a special tribute to the female gender, and more precisely to the topics of Women’s Abuse in modern society. A musical performance presented by the notable artist Maro Theodoraki, with female Greek New Yorkers performing songs especially written for women by renowned composers, is scheduled within this framework.

In short, an entire week of arts and culture, ablaze with outstanding images. Films, tributes, exhibitions. Meetings and chats with filmmakers who will be present in our exceptional festivities with their works. But also surprise honoring ceremonies and movie parties.
