    Yorgos Lanthimos

    Greece

    To me, it looks fake if you try to be too involved in the way you film things and if you ask your actors to get really emotionally involved.(..) I prefer to keep the film open to allow people to get engaged in their own way.

    Yorgos Lanthimos (1973, Greece) directed a series of videos for dance theatre companies throughout the 1990’s. Since 1995, he has directed a number of TV commercials, in addition to music videos, short films and stage plays. In 2011, he staged Chekhov’s ‘Platonov’ at the Greek National Theatre. His second feature film, KINETTA (2005), screened to critical acclaim at the 2005 Toronto IFF and the 2006 Berlinale. His third feature, DOGTOOTH (2009), won the Un Certain Regard award at the 2009 Festival de Cannes, followed by numerous awards at festivals worldwide. The film was also nominated for the foreign-language film Oscar in 2011. ALPS (2011) premiered in competition at Venice FF, where it won the Osella Award for best screenplay. THE LOBSTER (2015) was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Jury Prize. His 2017 film THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER was selected in competition at the 70th Festival de Cannes where it won the award for Best Screenplay.
