I am a filmmaker and photographer, with a background in architectural design, based in Montreal, Canada. Born in Albania and raised in Greece, I like to explore narratives related to origin, memory and human-technology relationships through the performative potential of the camera. My works blend reality and abstraction and have travelled to festivals in Canada, United States and Europe.
Early 2023, I finished the post-production of my first financed narrative short film “Ofranda”, which won an award by Metafilms at Prends ça court! Gala for its precise direction and sensitive storytelling. In 2021, I received the Writers Guild of Canada prize for the best English film script atCours Ecrire Ton Court organized by SODEC.
When I’m not working on my own projects, I do videography and photography to document and promote arts and culture in Montreal, especially dance, performance, and media arts installations. I have been involved as a videographer with Cinema Politica Montreal (Winter 2018) and as filmmaker/designer at the Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture & Technology  (2017-2019). Since 2019, I have been working as a photographer / videographer at Ada-x (previously Studio XX) and have also collaborated on a casual basis withTAG,Pixelles, Sight&Sound Festival 2020 (Eastern Bloc), CQAM and MUTEK.
