I have founded and run film festivals in the UK and the Netherlands, I have presented programmes in Latvia, scouted films in Transylvania, and attended some of the world’s largest film events as an industry guest in Oberhausen and Rotterdam. I know what film festivals are looking for, or what puts them off. I have also been behind and in front of the camera for several short documentaries – of varying quality – which gave me an insight into where filmmakers might be going wrong, and means I can identify what tricks of the trade they might try to improve in the future.
Since I was a student, I have been involved in various film festivals, whether as volunteer, jury or onsite reporter. I have worked for both Greek and American publications and have covered some of Europe’s biggest festivals (Berlinale, International Film Festival Rotterdam, International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam). I am always trying to take into consideration all the elements of a film and judge on the whole. Lastly, I have participated in a few projects as an actress.
