Faye Tsakas


Director, Christmas, Every Day

Faye Tsakas is a Greek-American filmmaker from New York City. Her creative non-fiction work documents strains of contemporary American culture in the context of late-stage capitalism, looking at youth culture, excess, disparity and absurdity — shifting away from the patriarchal gaze. She was named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Cinema in 2023. Her films have screened at SXSW, IFFR, AFI Fest, True/False Film Festival, Camden Film Festival, DC/DOX, IndieLisboa, Maryland Film Festival, AIFVF, and Museum of the Moving Image, among others. Her work has been distributed and featured by The New Yorker, Vimeo Staff Picks, Paper Magazine, and Nowness. Faye was a Film Independent Fast Track Producing Fellow in 2023, and she previously served as VP Production for Los Angeles based Passage Pictures, where she oversaw development for the company alongside its CEO. She was Director of Acquisitions & Production for independent Film & Television distribution company FilmRise where she championed the release of award winning documentary and narrative films, including Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Faye received her BA in American Studies from Cornell University and an MFA in Documentary Film & Video at Stanford University. She is represented for Film & Television by Cinetic Media.
