Katiana Zachariou

Katiana studied forensics because she thought she wanted to be a detective, but soon realised she actually wanted to make films about detectives, so she switched to literature and film instead.

Being a director and writer, she brings her storytelling superpowers to the table, and paired with her impeccable visual taste, she creates thought-provoking pieces with strong characters, while flowing seamlessly between narrative, commercial pieces, and music videos. Her work has earned her nominations for YDA and 1.4.

She was a singer in a past life, which is probably why rhythm always finds its way into her work. She is based in Berlin, and when not directing or writing, she likes to spend time in her hometown in Cyprus with her two dogs and a rabbit named Jessica.
