Konstantinos Menelaou is a film-maker, creative producer and curator based in London. His video and film work explores the sensitive and the dark side of the human condition. He explores these and other obsessions by using organic means of cinematic expression. Super8 film and avoidance of digital effects are the most distinct characteristics of his unique style.

His work has been shown at art and film festivals and galleries around the world including BFI Flare, Pica Australia, Miami Art Basel, Centre Pompidou, Outview Festival, Mix Milano, Barbican Art Gallery and Queer Lisboa.

Parallel to his own practice he works as an art curator and creative producer. He was the producer at large for Diane Pernet's A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival at Centre Pompidou in Paris for 2010 and 2011. He has produced and curated exhibitions and film events for London and New York Fashion Week, Miami Art Basel and Centre Pompidou and from 2011 until 2014 he was the Director and Curator for the Art program of Fringe! Film and Arts Festival in London.

In September 2013 he launched the Queer Archive, a project that aims to help queer film- makers and artists to create, exhibit and distribute their work. On its first year, The Queer Archive produced seven projects with all profits donated to artists, filmmakers and London based charities.

The Queer Archive is a curated platform for queer visual content and communication. It is a destination for all communities, a catalyst for the creation of ideas, a creative studio that nurtures and promotes queer voices.

The Queer Archive aims to inspire a positive viewpoint and to generate discussions on issues related to queer politics, culture and lifestyle. Dialogue and the exchange of information and ideas are at the core of our activities.

The Queer Archive’s fundraising efforts enable us to finance new content, produce events, make films, curate screenings and art exhibitions and to offer assistance to thinkers / filmmakers / artists of all media to materialise their ideas and reach an audience.

Our list of collaborators includes leading names in art, film and queer culture including Bruce La Bruce, Slava Mogutin, Brian Kenny, Paola Revenioti, Bradford Nordeen, Stuart Comer, Panagiotis Chatzistefanou, Diane Pernet, Billy Miller, Marie Schuller, Vincent Gagliostro, Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, Jeffrey Hinton, Stuart Sandford, Kostis Fokas, Sara Davidmann, A Man to Pet and Jonny Woo.
