Director Biography - Thanasis Neofotistos

Thanasis Neofotistos was born and raised in Athens. He initially studied Architecture in D.U.Th and afterwards continued by studying Film Directing and just recently obtained his Bachelor in Q.M.U (AMC) Film Directing. One of his characteristic assets, Scenography, is an influence from both his studies. His first short film that was distinguished is ‘THE SUN AND THE WIND’, created for the needs of his studies. ‘PROSEFHI: Greek School Prayer’, was his dissertation and certainly the most personal film to date. PROSEFHI has already been selected by several important international film festivals (21st Encounters ISFF, 26th Sao Paulo ISFF, 23rd Raindance IFF). In Greece it won the 1st prize (Golden Dionysus Award) at the 37th Drama ISFF, as well as other significant distinctions (Best Sound, Nomination at the Greek Film Academy Awards 2015). His latest short is a documentary called ‘POGONISKOS’ and won the Best Documentary Award at the 38th Drama ISFF and 21st Athens IFF 2015.
