Born and raised in Germany to Italian and Greek parents Leonardo was shaped to become an observer within the various cultural contexts he lived in.
Being an avid consumer of the arts led him consequently to find his medium. Leonardo's films are sensory and poetic while anchored in realistic contexts. With his concepts that revolve around human identity he aims to find that secret ingredient that transcends a truth that can only be sensed but hardly described.
In June 2023 his shortfilm "Il Fait Beau" had its world premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Festival in New York. The world premiere was followed by selections at the Oscar qualifying LAshorts Festival and at Hollyshorts in Los Angeles. Trailer: https://vimeo.com/814603280
His previous shortfilm "Traffic" went to multiple festivals worldwide and allowed him to to enter the industry in Amsterdam where he currently resides. Trailer: https://vimeo.com/56203283
His first feature film "The convert aka Nukki" is produced by East End Film and financially supported by the MFG Film Fund in Germany and the German TV Channel SWR.
In 2016 Leonardo won the pitch competition for his Italian feature project "Dogs and Lizards" at the T-Mobile New Horizon Film Festival in Wroclaw, Poland. In 2015 the same project won the Daazo pitch and was printed and distributed in the Daazo magazine during the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. This project is currently seeking a producer.
Leonardo has begun to create a commercial portfolio and is now seeking global representation as a commercial director.
Being proficient in 7 languages (German, English, Italian, French, Spanish, Dutch, Greek) allows him to create commercials around the world.
