Director Profile
Stavros C. Stavrides

Stavros Stavrides began his career in documentary film, but has shown an uncanny eye for theatrical features in recent years as a producer. He returns to his passion for the documentary to direct this intensely personal film for A Scattering of Seeds.
Stavrides wrote, produced and directed many award winning documentary programs throughout the 1980's including the feature length "God Rides A Harley", which won a Genie Award for Best Theatrical Documentary in 1988. He also wrote and directed feature segments for CBC-TV’s "Venture", which earned him a Gemini Award nomination.
Stavrides currently produces theatrical and television movies with international partners from his Toronto office. Awards for his productions include Best Canadian Film (Toronto International Film Festival), Nomination for Best Picture (Australia Academy Awards) and Bronze Plaque (Locarno Film Festival).
