In top of this, the film he created along with his schoolmates from the 1st Lyceum of Pyrgos, won two awards in 13th Camera Zizanio, last December.

We aso found out about his exceptional skills in sports, which apparently won’t stop here. We expect from him, as he’ll also parcticipate in the Pan Hellenic Games of Athletics, with the Athletic Club “HERMES” in Pyrgos,  to win one more disciction. And of course… his next film!

Stelios’ distinctions (as many other “kids of ours”  in the fields of science or art) filled us with great joy and satisfaction. Olympia Film Festival, remains to be a place of creativity for the youth generation, by offering them the opportunity to develop their talents and their skills in every field.
