Meraki Films is a production company based in Cyprus and established by Stelana Kliris, a filmmaker who wants to create independent films or ‘works of heart’ that will travel beyond the shores of her island.
Meraki Films collaborates with local production companies and filmmakers to promote Cyprus cinema, as well as providing services to international clients.
Stelana Kliris has a long-standing reputation on the island for being a reliable, persistent and hard-working professional. She has taken on multiple roles in local productions, but is most at home when she is directing or producing.
Before establishing Meraki Films, she produced and directed the first independent feature film in Cyprus after the crisis caused State cinema funding to be cut in collaboration with AMP Filmworks and producer Marios Piperides. Despite the low budget, COMMITTED went on to be distributed in multiple territories and optioned for a Hollywood remake. She also produced the award-winning feature film PAUSE, the feature directorial debut of Tonia Mishiali under long-time collaborator AB Seahorse Film Productions. She is currently working on several new projects under the banner of Meraki Films.
