Phaedra Vokali graduated with honors from the Marketing and Communication Department of the Athens Univeristy of Economic and Business in 2005 and got her MA in Film Studies from UCL in 2008. Before entering the production terrain, she has worked in distribution, as a buyer. She has also worked as head of programming of the Athens International Film Festival, and editor in chief of CINEMA Magazine. She has been working as a producer in Marni Films since October 2013 and she is an alumnus of the EAVE Producers Network and the Torino Film Lab (Script&Pitch, Framework). Her first completed feature film production, SUNTAN by Argyris Papadimitropoulos, was awarded with Best International Feature in Edinburgh International Film Festival and was nominated for the 2016 LUX prize as well as selected for the 2016 European Film Awards. It also landed in IndieWire’s list of 20 best films of 2016 from around the world. Her second feature, AFTERLOV, by Stergios Paschos, premiered in Locarno 2016 where it got the Best Film Award by the Youth Jury and it has also been awarded in Thessaloniki IFF, Transilvania IFF and elsewhere. She has produced more than ten short films and plans to keep working on this format, while she aims working with first-time directors and supporting more female-driven narratives.
