The Museum is happy to announce that the documentary “Patris, Lost in 1868” won an award at the International Film and Video Festival, organised by the Archaeology Channel between May 18th and 22th, 2010 at the Soreng Theater, Hult Center for the Performing Arts in Eugene, Oregon (USA).
A hundred films from 32 countries entered the festival. Nineteen were chosen to compete. “Patris, Lost in 1868″ won the Best Film (by Jury) as well as the Best Cinematography (by Jury) awards. This is a significant distinction, as the Greek production faced brilliant competition entries from the likes of the National Geographic and the History Channel.
