The Hellenic Film Academy (HFA) (Greek: Ελληνική Ακαδημία Κινηματογράφου) is an initiative of a group of Greek filmmakers. HFA presents the annual Hellenic Film Academy Awards ceremony, awarding the best films of Greek cinema of the last year.

The Hellenic Film Academy was founded on November 2009 by a group of active film professionals of Greek cinema, involved in the Filmmakers Of Greece movement demanding a new Greek film law.[1][2][3][4]

The founding members were 108 Greek filmmakers, producers, film critics, technicians, screenwriters and actors.[1] Greek filmmaker Tassos Boulmetis was elected the first president of the Hellenic Film Academy.[5] When it was founded, honorary members of the Academy were the filmmakers Costa Gavras, Nikos Koundouros, Mihalis Kakogiannis, Dinos Katsouridis and the actress Olympia Dukakis.[6][7]

On May 3, 2010 the first Hellenic Film Academy Awards ceremony was presented at the Athens Concert Hall.[2][3][7]
