Greek multi-instrumentalist and composer Olivia Hadjiioannou won the Best Music Video award for Red Lion in the inaugural French Riviera Film Festival (FRFF) in Cannes, France. The two-day festival held during the time period of the annual Festival de Cannes included screenings, VIP receptions, an awards ceremony, and closing gala party. The award was presented on May 19 by Gotham Chandna, founder of Cloud 21 International and Nicole Muj, founder of Kultura PR International.

In accepting the award, Hadjiioannou said, “I am truly honored to receive this award and to have represented Greece at the French Riviera Film festival in Cannes. Today’s commercial music and film industries present difficult challenges to indie composers, musicians and directors if they are to succeed and be profitable. I am grateful to film festivals like FRFF, which welcome new works, celebrate originality and promote creative freedom.”Director Olivia Hadjiioannou as the artist Oh. has been honored for her ingenuity, innovation and creativity in music and video with multiple international awards. She made her debut as Oh. on the international music scene with the award-winning music video, Trials in 2013 – cited as one of the 50 top events to mark Greece during the economic crisis. With the advances of immersive video, she released her single Love of Avalanches, mentioned in Huffington Post as one of first 360-degree immersive VR videos released by a Greek artist on YouTube in 2016.
