Hi, I’m Zacharias Mavroeidis and I’m a filmmaker from Athens.
I was born in the northern suburbs of the city at a time when herds of sheep still crossed the neighborhood. I graduated from a Music High School and a faculty of Architecture but ended up in film-making.
I participated in both the Berlinale (2007) and the Sarajevo (2008) Talent Campus. I have directed various shorts and videos and worked as a scriptwriter for film and TV. On 2010 I directed a documentary on the Syrian community of Athens as part of a doc-series for the Greek National Broadcast.
One year later, I completed my first feature film “The guide” (“O xenagos”). The film was released in theaters in Greece and has played in over 20 International Film Festivals.
On June 2014 my first novel titled “Efta psihes sto stoma” by Polaris Editions was published in Greece.
