The month of Kokkinos

Director Ana Kokkinos will be busy this month, honoured as an “emerging master” in Seattle and offering a two-day directing masterclass at AFTRS Victoria.

Kokkinos has been selected by the Seattle Film Festival as a director ‘destined to leave an impressive mark on cinema’; her films Head On and Blessed will be screened at the event.

“This is a wonderful honour […] It’s a terrific opportunity to engage with audiences and share the work. It is also a tribute to my many collaborators over the years; my producers, writers, cast and crew, funding bodies and distributors. Together, we’ve made films that are innovative, distinctive and have a unique perspective on who we are, while touching on universal themes and connecting with audiences around the world,” said Kokkinos, who is currently in the north western US state.

Kokkinos will be back for a directing masterclass on June 26 and 27, at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in Melbourne. She’s expected to present excerpts of her work, explaining her approach to filmmaking, and how she develops a project from script to screen and the collaborative process involved in leading and guiding a film crew.
