CV

Jacqueline (Athens, 1989) is an artist whose cinematic language involves discovering poetry in – seemingly - mundane premises. Her tools are word and image association, the dream-construct, intuition. She experiments with formats, durations and feelings.

Through her work she discusses non-traditional family systems, loneliness, duality and oneness, love, and most importantly, the lack of it. A London Film School graduate (2013), Jacqueline has written and directed five short films up and one feature film until now, all of them having a remarkably successful festival career having premiered at Locarno, Toronto, Berlin, Cannes.

She is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the Award in the Memory of Ignmar Bergman for FOX, the  Leica Cine Discovery Award by Semaine de La Critique (Cannes) for Hector Malot: The Last Day of the Year (2018), as well as the Grand Prix in Reykjavik IFF for Moon, 66 Questions (2021) among other distinctions.

Retrospectives on her work have taken place in Montreal, Vienna, Porto and Ghent, in the context of which she gave masterclasses on filmmaking.
