PATISION AVENUE

SHORT FILM BY THANASIS NEOFOTISTOS

NOTE      DIRECTOR'S      CV 

PATISION AVENUE is my attempt to understand my mother; a creature of admirable sensitivity, torn between her female nature, stereotypes about women and her true desires. What I can now see is that she tried hard winning battles but losing others. As a Filmmaker this short was my personal Everest; a demanding single-long-take-shot in central Athens.

Thanasis Neofotistos is a Film Director, Writer & Architect from Athens GreeceBerlinale Talents 2016 alumnus.PATISION AVENUE” world premiere will be in Venice Film Festival 2018 (Orizzonti) and has already participated in NisiMasaESP 2016. ”PROSEFHI: Greek School Prayer” was his dissertation and has been selected by several important International Film Festivals (21st Encounters, 26th SaoPaulo, 23rdRaindance, 35thMunich, and 40 more IFF) and won the 1st prize (Golden Dionysus Award) at the 37th DramaISFF, as well as other significant distinctions (Best Sound, Photography, Nomination GFA, etc). His documentary called ”POGONISKOS” won the Best Documentary Award at the 38th DramaISFF. He is now in development stage of his first-debut feature film, which he envisions as a dark, coming-of-age, folktale, ”PETER AND THE WOLF”; the film project has already been selected, amongst other, at  First Films First 2017, MFI, Sarajevo Script Station and got MEDIA development funding.
