Awards November 2018

EURIMAGES Co-Production Award

  • This year’s EURIMAGES Co-Production Award goes to EAVE graduate Konstantinos Kontovrakis and his fellow producer Giorgos Karnavas. Kontovrakis and Karnavas founded Athens-based production company Heretic, whose credits include Elina Psykou's SON OF SOFIA, and Etienne Kallos' South African drama THE HARVESTERS, which bowed in Cannes' Un Certain Regard section this year. The Greek producers first came together on WASTED YOUTH from directors Argyris Papadimitropoulos and Jan Vogel, which became a cross-over arthouse hit. Kontovrakis was “Producer on the Move” in 2014 and he is the national representative of EAVE in Greece. Karnavas was a “Producer on the Move” in 2013. Heretic is focusing on quality-driven films and international co-productions, dedicated to working with filmmakers with a natural talent for storytelling and bringing like-minded people together. Holding strong ties with the international film world, Heretic looks for projects with an international perspective and ensures their position in the world-wide market from development till completion. The two also run Heretic Outreach, Heretic's international sales arm The Co-Production Award, handed out by European film subsidy group Eurimages, honors outstanding achievement in film production across European borders. The award will be presented at the 2018 European Film Awards in Seville, Spain, on December 15.
