Theo Panagopoulos is a Greek-Lebanese-Palestinian filmmaker and emerging curator based in Scotland. He is interested in creating and promoting stories that explore in an ethical and intersectional way themes of memory, politics, fragmented identity and language connected to collective trauma and healing.
His creative documentary short “My Own Personal Lebanon” screened in multiple BAFTA-Qualifying festivals, shortlisted for the IRIS award of the Hellenic Film Academy and won the Odysseus award at the International Documentary Festival of Kastellorizo. His most recent documentary "The Place between Was & Will Be" will premiere at Thessaloniki Documentary Festival this March.
In 2021 he joined the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival through Film Hub Scotland's New Promoter Scheme and curated three events that explored the intersectionality of healing by experimenting with the concept of trigger-sensitive programming.
