Headed by award-winning Producers Giorgos Karnavas and Konstantinos Kontovrakis, our Heretic production team focuses on developing, financing and producing original fiction and documentary films.
Both G. Karnavas and K. Kontovrakis trained at EAVE and ACE. Representing Greece, both G. Karnavas and K. Kontovrakis were presented as 2013 and 2014 “Producers on the Move in Cannes”. The two are also members of the European and Greek Film Academies, and received the prestigious Eurimages Co-Production Award from the 2018 European Academy Awards. In 2022, they landed their first Palme D’or with Ruben Östlund’s biting satire TRIANGLE OF SADNESS.
We are always open to hearing fresh ideas and exploring new ways of bringing compelling stories to the worlds’ screens; they are passionate about nurturing talent while utilizing all possible tools in order to succeed on the level each project deserves.
All of our in-house producers are experienced in working in a range of languages, and acting as co-producer or line producer for international projects accessing local financing. This ensures a seamless intergration in Greece for each project, while allowing for significant contributions on the creative side from the Heretic producers.
By taking full advantage of local and international financing, along with the competitive cash rebate of 40% on Greek production expenses, Heretic is a vital and competitive production partner.
Heretic’s productions have been selected for prominent festivals including Cannes, Berlinale, Rotterdam, San Sebastian, Tribeca, Karlovy Vary among others, and have won numerous awards worldwide.
