Minos Papas is a London born Greek Cypriot filmmaker currently based in New York City. Son of internationally acclaimed film director Michael Papas, Minos was introduced to the film world at a young age achieving his first international award at the age of 16 with the short film Whispers (1993) at the Make-A-Video youth competition in Helsinki, Finland.

Minos has been working in the indie film industry of New York for the past ten years. He earned a BFA in Film at the School of Visual Arts and was awarded the school's top award for Cinematography. His first independent feature film, Shutterbug (2009), was released theatrically in 2010 in New York and Los Angeles. Shutterbug received reviews from Variety, The Village Voice, The New York Times and many more publications and blogs which merited the film for its Lynchian atmosphere and beautiful imagery. Shutterbug screened at international festivals and Minos was invited to the Apple Store Soho and the National Arts Club of New York to screen and discuss the film.

Minos' most recent documentary 'A Short Film About Guns' which examines the illegal arms trade was selected for the Tribeca Film Festival 2013 where it won the Best Online Short audience competition. Minos is currently developing a screenplay for his second feature film.
