ARTIST OF THE WEEK
Alexandra Bekiou is a new filmmaker, based in Cologne Germany. Their origins are from Greece and the former Yugoslavia. She was born in Germany, 46 years ago, moved to Greece when she was 20 and came back to Germany 7 years ago. She started to write stories since she was 6 years old. After 33 years she finds herself on a film set, working together with professionals, giving her the chance to watch, learn and work for many films. With learning by doing, Alexandra Bekiou managed it after 7 years of working on different film sets, to make her own debut film called „Als die Welle brach…/As the wave broke…“ as a writer, director and producer. She is still helping out on different film sets, when she has the time to, and she is writing her script now for her long movie she wants to shoot in the near future. Her ambitions are to show a different kind of working together as a team (cast and crew) and to show that someone who has not visited a film school, can do a film, because of talents, and this should be a motivation as respected.
Opportunities, collaborations, free stuff and more!
