Cameron Kostopoulos

Cameron Kostopoulos is an award-winning director, filmmaker, and XR pioneer. The overlap between his alternative writing & directing and technical VFX skills frees him to create dreamt worlds, fading memories, and deeply intimate experiences.

​In May 2022, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from USC's School of Cinematic Arts, with a BFA in Film & Television Production and a minor in Future Cinema. Currently, he is studying under Nonny de la Peña and Mary Matheson at ASU’s Narrative & Emerging Media Program.

Cameron’s work has been awarded by many world-class festivals and organizations. His XR experience “Body of Mine” won the Special Jury Award at SXSW, while his student short film “A Mother’s Soliloquy” was selected as a Semi-Finalist for the Student Academy Awards, and won him many regional and national awards for Best Director.

With a multidisciplinary approach to filmmaking, his work blends poetic cinema with narrative storytelling, relying on emotional realism to explore the inner human psyche. 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 is continuing to explore the intersection of technology and intimacy, while writing and directing live-action films and XR experiences.
