Greek Film Critics Association

The Greek Film Critics Association or Pan-Hellenic Film Critics Association (Greek: Πανελλήνια Ένωση Κριτικών Κινηματογράφου, ΠΕΚΚ) was founded in 1976. The first members were the famous Greek film critics such as Nino Fenek Mikelidis, Vasilis Rafailidis, Yannis Bakogiannopoulos and others.
