Homemade Films is an Athens-based film production and distribution company, founded in 2009 by Maria Drandaki. It has since produced and co-produced several successful short and feature films, with a taste for sharp, cutting-edge, innovative cinema. The company’s films participated and got awarded in several international film festivals and film events (Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Locarno, Toronto, Rotterdam, Karlovy Vary, IDFA, Palm Springs, EFA, BAFTA, etc.), and they got distributed in movie theaters and TV channels around the world.
