Ο Ανδρέας ο Βακαλιός

I was born in Budapest where I spent half of my life's summers. I studied Digital Arts (MFA) at the Athens School of Fine Arts and Informatics at TEI of Athens.

I have participated with scripts, animation, documentaries and short films at Athens Int'l Film Festival, Thessaloniki Int'l Film Festival, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Benaki Museum, Athens Municipal Gallery e.t.c.

I was selected for the Talents Sarajevo of the Sarajevo Film Festival in August 2018.

A short film (Yama, prod. GFC) and a feature documentary script (Nikos Karouzos - Poems on a Taperecorder, prod. Faliro House, HBC, GFC) of mine are funded by the Greek Film Centre while I was a finalist at screenwriting and pitching workshops/contests of the Hellenic Film Academy 2017, Greek Film Centre 2016, Int'l Drama Short Film Festival and I was shortlisted at the NISIMASA European Short Pitch 2017.

Ι have attended masterclasses and workshops by Bella Tarr, Werner Herzog, Gyula Gazdag, Srdjan Dragojevic, Bobby Roth, Csaba Bollok, Ognjen Svilisic.

I was accepted in the Master Program of Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts in Prague FAMU and in the Master Program of the Netherlands Film And TV Academy AHK but never attended either due to lack of scholarships.

I have worked as a visiting editing and mixing tutor at ASFA, a Getty Images videographer, an editor for documentaries and as a videographer for various live shows and performances.
