Passage to Europe, Special Jury Award

I look at the world with curiosity and joy, as if I discover it anew each day. Transformation of reality has always interested me, and my favourite courses were at the School of Cinema and Television in Munich. In the documentary industry, I have worked in all possible posts, with a focus on creative documentary development, festival audience development, and impact distribution. In 2016, I established KinderDocs International Documentary Festival for children and young audiences, in collaboration with the Benaki Museum in Athens and MOMus in Thessaloniki, as well as IDFA (Amsterdam) and Doxs! (Duisburg, Germany). I contribute articles to the Greek-and German-speaking press on topics inspired and related to documentary.
