About the Director

Elias’ first feature film, The Crimson Mask , was a surprise hit of the festival circuit, going on to win over 40 Independent film awards. The film was able to attain worldwide distribution and continues to be a cult symbol of true independent filmmaking, spinning off into an episodic mini-series on HULU . Elias is currently touring the festival circuit with his new project The Man From The City, while developing a slate of Feature Film remakes with Canadian partners Evos Media.
