The protection of cinematographic art is the responsibility of the State, which should provide for its development. According to Greek legislation, the State is obliged to take necessary measures for the moral and material support of all types of art, including the production, distribution, and promotion of Greek films. This duty led to the 1998 establishment of the Greek Film Centre (GFC), a corporation whose goals are the protection, reinforcement, support, and development of cinematographic art in Greece.

This corporation belongs to the broader public sector, is supervised by the Ministry of Culture, and is subsidized by the State.
