Cineuropa magazine characterized Zapas as “one of the most outstanding directors of contemporary auteur cinema,” while The Guardian referred to him as “one of the main protagonists of the burgeoning Greek new wave in cinema.” His first feature, Uncut Family (2004), screened at the 45th Thessaloniki IFF. His second feature film, The Last Porn Movie (2006), had its world premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival and, following its Greek premiere at the Athens IFF, screened at the Kiev IFF, the Cyprus IFF, the Thessaloniki IFF and the Chennai IFF. Lars von Trier’s production company, Zentropa, co-produced his third feature film Minor Freedoms (2008).

The script was selected as one of the best European scripts by the Producers Lab Toronto 2011 at the Toronto IFF, in collaboration with the European Film Promotion and the Ontario Media Development Corporation.
