Current legislation includes several measures intended to promote Greek literature, as well as literary translations from and into the Greek language. Special measures included literary prizes, commissioning of works, the purchase of a number of copies of works by state libraries and other organisations, etc.

Also, films primarily in the Greek language or created by Greek filmmakers are eligible for production funding by the Greek Film Centre, and for prizes awarded by the state, especially in the context of the Thessaloniki Cinema Festival. In addition, movie theatres and film distribution companies are eligible for tax rebates for screening or distributing films in the Greek language.
