Sol PapadopoulosProducer, Director and Founder | Hurricane Films
Sol began as a stills photographer before progressing on to moving image following a 16mm short course at the National Film School. After making documentaries and short dramas as a freelancer for major broadcasters both national & international – collecting numerous awards along the way – he founded Hurricane Films in March 2000. The ethos is to tell great stories – whether fact or fiction.

He has produced eight feature films including three Terence Davies films; Of Time and The City, Sunset Song and A Quiet Passion. All premiered at A list festivals. The most recent production is the Tim Spall starrer The Last Bus, penned by Joe Ainsworth and released in UK cinemas in September 2021. Sol includes six Royal Television Awards and two BAFTA nominations among his many plaudits.
