Ms Bertes has worked in legal and business affairs in the film and television for the past ten years. She commenced her career in the entertainment sector as legal and business affairs manager at Film Victoria, the Victorian (Australia) government’s film agency. During her tenure with Film Victoria (and then Cinemedia), she oversaw and participated in the contractual negotiations of many Australian productions – ranging from shorts, documentaries, television series, new media projects and feature films.
In 1997 Cinemedia introduced one of the world’s first multimedia grant schemes and Ms Bertes was instrumental in the development of responsive contractual frameworks to address the new legal challenges created by multimedia projects.
For over ten years she was also the Director of the Greek Film Festival, in Australia, which screened contemporary Greek films and presented retrospectives of the work of significant contributors to Greek Cinema.
Upon establishing herself in Europe, in 2011 she set up Logline a creative consultancy & production company, which is dedicated to improving the regulatory framework of filming in Greece, to assisting filmmakers with vision and courage, and to the craft of filmmaking. She currently works as a consultant for government, industry organizations, and for film industry practitioners, including major production companies, independent producers and filmmakers.
Ms. Bertes is a member of the team of professionals at Avramopoulos & Partners as an entertainment law consultant.
