Peter Pontikis


Peter Pontikis graduated from the Royal Institute of art in Stockholm, 2006. His
thesis film, the Gift, loosely based on a Velvet Underground song, got him
attention as a director and he followed with the cult feature Not like Others, a
low budget vampire drama, in 2009. He has continued to write and direct
successful short films and projects that crosses the line between film and art --
most notably 'Oh Deer', a VR-film/art installation that takes the
perspective of a wounded deer during a deer hunt.

His 2015 short 'Boy-Razor' won Best Film at Oberhausen Film Fest and
played a string of film festivals around the globe.

Peter is currently working on his second feature and is based in Stockholm.
