Effie Pappa

Effie's work explores characters, and discusses universal themes depicting human concerns through allegory, absurdism and black humour. Her films have been screened and awarded internationally; with her stand out film “My Stuffed Granny”, winning twenty Awards for Best short film in 2014. Her work has also featured in likes of Rolling Stone, BFI Showcase, Short of the Week, ABC and The Fader to name a few.

Most recently, Effie talents were brought in to help celebrate the fifty-year anniversary of Yusuf / Cat Stevens seminal album ‘Tea for the Tillerman’, who reimagined some of his most well-loved tracks for 2020.

Drawing inspiration from the 1942 classic movie Casablanca, and with a child only cast, Effie takes us into a dreamy 1940’s world, as Yusuf’s stunning rendition of his own 1970’s track guides our thoughts towards hope and the belief in better.

“Yusuf’s iconic song ‘Wild World’ has spoken to a number of generations, and to my eyes, the lyrics are letters from a younger self. I strongly felt the urge to create something that would equally be a recall to our inner child and that exact same safe place."

Other stand out works include “The Little Elephant” by George Hadjipieris, Athens Concert Hall 'Paddington Bear’ and her works for 'Laughing Cow' and 'McDonalds'
