A founding partner and President of Beast of the East Productions (BOTEP), Ramfis has built a career as a producer with many highlights. Ramfis recently worked as a producer on Cicada (2020), which was screened and won awards at NewFest, Madrid International LGBT Festival and several others. Proud achievements of his include: producing 5150 (2021) over the course of the pandemic, producing Any Other Way, working on the Mary Pickford biopic Why Not Choose Love: A Mary Pickford Manifesto; and premiering his short film, Love and The Small Print, at the 2012 65th Annual Cannes Film festival, where it was picked up by Shorts International for worldwide distribution. Ramfis would return to Sundance in 2018 with A Boy, A Girl, and A Dream, which placed among the top 18 films for the entire festival, garnering sufficient notoriety for acquisition by Samuel Goldwyn Films for a Fall theatrical release. His continued growth and success in the film industry earned him a spot in Stars' 2018 40 Under 40 list of Movers and Shakers. His acumen for filmmaking is a proven product, and his insight has been sought out as a juror for the Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema and as a moderator for a panel on breaking into Hollywood at the 10th annual Bushwick Film Festival. Ramfis' passion for film is matched only by his passion to give back and pay it forward to his community by sharing and teaching his skills and knowledge to the next generation of students, artists, and creators. Ramfis is an active member of BAFTA NY, The Friars Club, Hollywood Radio & Television Society (HRTS), Toastmasters International - SEC Roughriders, The Long Island Film and TV Foundation.
