Director Biography - Marios P. Papageorgiou

Marios P. Papageorgiou was born in Thessaloniki in 1981. He has been immersed in the cinema from the early age of 5. He studied Film & Television in Greece and Scotland. His agony to express himself in cinematic terms begins by reviewing classic films in Thessaloniki freepress periodicals. He has published in a collective work a series of film guides. In 1995, the film director, who will point him the horizon of his future career, will be John Ford (that Nile River of Cinema).

In 2008, he will finish his first short length film and in 2011 his second one, "L'histore du nombre 1" & "Avant' d'avoir le vent", respectively. While in 2013 he will chronicle with his camera the immigrants' hunger strikes at Hypatia building in Athens.

The film creation will not cease his pathos for film criticism. In 2012 he will co-organise and co-present the 3rd Silent Film Festival: Woman's Empowerment at Michalis Kakoyannis Foundation. Moreover, he will participate in 27th convention of Greek Film Club's Federation: The historical, theoretical and critical discourse in Cinema, with his speech about Christos Vakalopoulos. He will do the same in the context of a remembrance day, in 2016, when he will orgranise an event for Vakalopoulos' 25th death anniversary. Finally, in 2017, he will stand at the podium of Hellenic Parliament, to discourse for Nikos Koundouros' film work in a ceremony honoring his memory.

Now, in 2021, he has finished his last cinematic short length venture "Shadows of the World".
And he continues...
