Dr Fil Ieropoulos
Before joining Buckinghamshire New University in 2003, I was working for Illuminations TV and the Arts Council, while also teaching at the City and Islington and West Herts colleges.
I studied for my PhD at the University of Kent and my specialist area of interest is in film poetry. My specialist knowledge has led me to work with the Freud Museum, the Onassis Institute, the Arts Council of Britain, the Athens Biennale, the National Opera of Greece, the Neukoellner Oper in Berlin, the Zurich Institute of Arts, the Bâtiment d’Art Contemporain (Geneva), the Athens School of Fine Arts and the Unesco World Book Capital.
My films, artworks and writing have been shown in numerous festivals, conferences and showcases around Europe. Those include Performance & Philosophy (Ljubljana), Sound Gender Feminism Activism conference (London College of Communication), AWEN Poetry Film Festival (Glamorgan), Trampoline New Media Festival (Nottingham), Directors’ Lounge (Berlin), Technology & Transformations conference (Bucks New Uni), Aarau One Minute Festival, Prism (Sheffield), Chisenhale Dance Space, Lux Cinema (London), The Museum of Club Culture (Hull), ReWorks Festival (Thessaloniki), 291 Gallery (London), Athens Video Art Festival and so on.
My career highlight as a practitioner is being commissioned to direct a large project for the National Opera of Greece in 2020, a queer restaging of Claudio Monteverdi’s L’ Orfeo.
