Tiffany Kontoyiannis is a young Latina writer, director, actress and filmmaker. She is the daughter of a Greek father and Venezuelan mother, and was born in New York City. She is a published playwright and has been recognized for her work in film.
Her most recent films have been acknowledged at festivals such as the Athena Film Festival, Cannes Short Film Corner, Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival, Women’s Only Entertainment, and many more.
Tiffany is also known for her anti-bullying work and organization. After moving to Miami as a child, Tiffany was severely bullied by her classmates. This inspired her to write “The Cycle,” a play that demonstrates the effects of bullying. At the age of 14 she was touring South Florida with her cast to showcase her play. Since then, she has appeared on MSNBC, NBC, TV Venezuela and CBS to speak about bullying and how the visual arts can be used to create change. Keeping this passion in mind, Tiffany began creating films that brought inspiring, engaging and important topics to light. Her most recent projects have been devoted to telling Latin stories in hopes of further diversifying the industry.
