Mission & Strategy

The Hellenic Cinema and Television School Stavrakos (HCTSS) was founded in 1950 by Lykourgos Stavrakos and is the first School of Cinema and Television in Greece.
Lykourgos Stavrakos was born in Sparta, a city in Peloponissos, in 1913. His biggest dream was to become a film director, however until the 1940’s there was no School of Cinema established by the Greek State. Filmmakers and directors working in the Greek film industry at that time mainly relied on their empirical knowledge, while very few of them had studied abroad. Under these circumstances, Lykourgos Stavrakos was unable to fulfill his dream and study film direction in Greece.
Since the Greek State had not established a National Film School, the materialization of this project was left to private initiative and to the good will of possible volunteers.
Lykourgos Stavrakos, a man who combined a strong sense of reality, along with high artistic sensitivity and extraordinary organizational skills, responded to this challenge. It is a true miracle that Lykourgos Stavrakos overcame all difficulties and barriers and in 1948 managed to create a School of high standards, a School that constantly develops as years go by.
Lykourgos Stavrakos became the first man to establish film education in Greece when in 1950, the Stavrakos Film School set up in 1948, officially became the first state-accredited Film School of Greece, after obtaining a license from the Greek Ministry of Culture (No. 65090). In 1968, the School supplemented its curriculum with courses about television broadcasting and changed its name to Hellenic Cinema and Television School Stavrakos. It is the main cell and the leading centre of Cinema and Television Studies in Greece, the cradle of many generations of artists and technicians. Most of the best well-known artists and technicians in the audiovisual industry have come out from the Stavrakos School, while a good deal of graduates excel abroad.
The School covers the main activities in the Cinema and Television education. The annual curriculum, as well as the whole structure of the School follows the patterns of the leading European and American faculties with which it cooperates and coordinates its activities. The work of the Hellenic Cinema and Television School Stavrakos has been widely acknowledged both in Greece and overseas.
