Oxbelly, the Greek non-profit founded by Christos V. Konstantakopoulos, the producer and founder of Faliro House Productions serves international storytellers through its annual gatherings held in Costa Navarino, Greece, while helping shape a burgeoning Greek film industry through year-round offerings in Athens. Each year the Oxbelly gathering is built around distinct, innovative labs for storytellers - dedicated to intercultural dialogue through exchanges of ideas, deepening of craft and broadening of artistic horizons. Oxbelly Labs include the Screenwriters and Directors Labs under the artistic direction of filmmaker Athina Rachel Tsangari, next held in 2024, as well as two new programs launched in 2023 dedicated to emerging writers in the television and literary industries: the Episodic Program and the Writers Retreat, led by program director Chigozie Obioma.
