About Stathis

I have studied Medicine, Animation and Film Direction.

After quite a few short films that were screened and awarded at international film festivals, I was selected to participate at the 3rd Berlinale Talent Campus.

“DOS, a love story in reverse...” (2011) was my first feature film. The film was an official selection in more than 10 international festivals (NYIIFF, Hong-Kong EFF, Gijón IFF, Thessaloniki IFF et al.) and won four awards (Best Film & Audience Award at NYIFF, Best Production Design & Audience Award at Corinthian IFF).

With “Alpha” (2015) my team and I brought crowd-funding to Greece for the first time, creating a Transmedia Cinematic Performance that blends cinema, performance and live music for the re-telling of Antigone's myth in the 21st century.

My work as a Visual Artist in contemporary theatre and performance has traveled in such prestigious festivals as Festival d’Automne á Paris, Kunsten Festival des Artes, Wiener Festwöchen, International Theatre Festival of Belo Horizonte, Cairo International Festival of Experimental Theatre, Athens & Epidaurus Festival et al. with important groups like Theseum Ensemble [Michail Marmarinos] , the Greek National Theatre, the Onassis Cultural Foundation, Theatre Group Opera [Theo Abazis] et al.

I am a proud member of ARCH, the theatre archive of the Societas Raffaello Sanzio [Romeo Castellucci, Claudia Castellucci, Chiara Guidi] and an official programmer at Slamdance Film Festival.​
