Creator

Cameron Kostopoulos is a queer writer and director based in Los Angeles, California. Currently studying at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, Cameron is set to graduate in May 2022 with a BFA in Film & Television Production, with a minor in Future Cinema. In addition to short films, he also pioneers projects in new media, including VR & XR, motion capture, live installations, experimental film, and interactive experiences. 

 

With a multidisciplinary approach to filmmaking, Cameron’s work blends poetic cinema with narrative storytelling, relying on emotional realism to explore the inner psyche of his characters. While at USC, his short film “A Mother’s Soliloquy” was recognized as a Semi-Finalist by the Student Academy Awards. His willingness to challenge convention has been recognized by dozens of film festivals domestically and internationally, including awards for Best Picture and Best Director. 

 

Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, Cameron uses his own experience with homophobia to create films that spread empathy and understanding for the queer experience. He has worked with leading LGBTQ+ organizations to create and promote stories about queer identity, including The National AIDS Memorial and The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and has collaborated with queer artists including Jason A. Rodriguez, co-star of the FX series POSE, to bring underrepresented characters to the screen. 

 

Moving into the future, he hopes to continue exploring the intersection of technology and queer identity.
