Director Biography – Harry Ayiotis

From a very young age, Harry was on a steady diet on films from Hollywood’s golden era. His father, a film buff himself made sure he was properly educated on all things cinema. He never realized though that he was molding him to become obsessed with the silver screen and that he would later on (to his dismay) decide to

follow the unpredictable and high-risk treacherous path of a filmmaker. However, he had to take a small detour and get a law degree, practice for a year for the experience then relocate to New York from Cyprus to work on indie productions and learn filmmaking hands-on. After his hands on education he returned back to his homeland where he has worked on various film productions, from indie features to short films. He just finished his latest short film QUIDNUNC that was funded by the Ministry of Culture and Education of Cyprus.
