Nostos is the Greek term that refers to Odysseus Journey home. At Nostos Film Productions we want to create a home for your dreams. For us the return isn't just about returning home physically but also about retaining your identity upon arrival. Staying true to your vision and voice.
Films animate our thoughts and fantasies, transports us to a different place. A place we haven't yet contemplated. We want to produce films that allow us to look at the familiar places with a disarmingly new regard. A film shouldn't answer questions at the end, it should trigger more questions and help us look at the world differently. Find the unfamiliar in the familiar.
We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
