Irida Zhonga is a Greek animation director specialising in stop motion animation.  

Being born into an animation family, she was immersed into this world from a very young age and inevitably became part of her identity.

Her passion for story and image has led her to explore different techniques of animation and she is always trying to find new ways to push her limits by realising ambitious projects.

She graduated University of the Arts London in 2012 with a degree in Film and Television and is based in London and Athens where she works as a director creating commercials, films and branded content.

She’s currently developing her short stop motion animation film “Man Wanted” (a Greek/Estonian/Serbian/Albanian coproduction) which marks the first ever Greek-Estonian collaboration of the two countries in an audiovisual project.
