Honoring the 'birthplace' of many recent international and local films, such as Kimon Tsakiris' MITSIGAN - HARDSHIPS & BEAUTIES, the Consul General will host a Messenia-themed party at her private residence on Sunday evening. Messenia-style, rare delicacies from this beautiful region will complete the LAGFF experience: Pork garnished with orange peel, chicken tenders with Messenian noodles, rustic-style lamb with artichokes and potatoes, a meatless monastic recipe served with pearl onions, chestnuts, mushrooms in spiced vinegar and olive oil, octopus with arugula, marinated tilapia in oregano, olive oil, lemon, and collard greens - and more. Costa Navarino Luxury Resort, the party's presenter, will also offer LAGFF patrons the opportunity to sample Messenian local, high quality products such as olives, extra virgin olive oil, eggplant and tomato dips, roasted red peppers and mini green peppers. Finally, an array of Greek wines will be presented by LAGFF sponsor Boutari Wines. This exclusive event is open to Gold Pass-holders only.
