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.

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] Honorary members of the Academy are 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]
