“As our 50th anniversary approaches, we learned with great sadness that Dimitri Eipides has passed away following a lengthy illness. Dimitri played a very important role in discovering new talents and emerging filmmakers who later shot to international renown. He took an active part in developing the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF), the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and the Reykjavik International Film Festival (RIFF) after founding the Montreal Festival du nouveau cinéma (FNC) in 1971. We are very proud and grateful for all the work Dimitri did throughout his career and draw inspiration from him as we continue pursuing our mission.” – Nicolas Girard Deltruc, FNC Executive Director, Montréal – January 6 2021
