With a postgraduate degree in communication studies (Leeds, UK) and a specialization in documentary filmmaking, Angelos has twelve years of experience in the film industry. Since 2011, he has focused mainly on producing/directing creative documentaries with an international potential. His main objective is to explore the potential of the documentary form as a tool for social impact. “The New Plastic Road” (co-production with ZDF/Arte, MEDIA Development Fund and Greek Film Centre) is his first feature length film that explores the socioeconomic changes in the destitute communities of Pamirs, Tajikistan. With the support of a Fulbright artist scholarship (2016/2017) and his affiliation with the San Francisco Film Society (2017/2018), he is developing his current project on Roma youth and social integration. Understanding the societal change and the power of storytelling, Angelos is spearheading “DocRepublic” – a documentary hub where digital storytellers and public dialogue will be inspired.
