63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

The Thessaloniki International Film Festival, in collaboration with COSMOTE TV, presents a special screening of the first episode of the third circle of the series The Other Me, produced by COSMOTE TV. In this first episode of the circle, Nikos Vanortas has been dismissed from the force due to his handling of the Reptile case. His position has been filled by new chief Athena Lygerou. Lainis is shut up at home in mourning; he has stopped teaching and finds solace in dreams, the only place he can be with Tonia. Martha is faced with a dilemma regarding the Other Me case, unable to think of a way to arrest Danae without involving Lainis. An explosion at a funeral home leaves behind a corpse and galvanizes the Homicide Unit into action…

Sotiris Tsafoulias

Sotiris Tsafoulias was born in Piraeus in 1975. He studied Maritime Business and Maritime Law, but his great love was cinema. Following a successful career in business, he turned to film. His first feature film was Common Denominator (2014), with which he participated in several international festivals, winning a total of seven awards in various categories including Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Film and Audience Award. The script of Common Denominator was adapted for the theater by Didier Long and premiered at the Théâtre de l’Atelier in Paris. The Other Me was his second feature film, winning two awards at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival: the Michael Cacoyannis Award and the Youth Jury Award of the Universities of Thessaloniki for Best Film. The film also won the Audience Award at the 12th Liège International Crime Film Festival and the Los Angeles Film Festival, the Special Effects and Cinematic Innovation Award from the Hellenic Film Academy, and Best Director at the Taormina Film Fest. The Other Me quickly became a favorite of film-lovers and other viewers, and in summer 2019 the sequel series The Other Me: Lost Souls premiered on COSMOTE TV. The huge success of the series was followed by another season, The Other Me: Catharsis, while what will probably be the last season in the series, The Other Me: Nemesis, was presented in early 2023. In 2021 Tsafoulias directed the theater play Enigmatic Variations by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt. The play was a great success in all respects and will be staged again at the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation in late 2023.
