Faye is a Greek-American filmmaker born in New York City, based between Los Angeles and New York. She was named one of Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Cinema in 2023. Her creative non-fiction work documents strains of contemporary American culture in the context of late-stage capitalism, looking at youth culture, excess, disparity and absurdity -- shifting away from the patriarchal gaze. Her latest film, Christmas Every, Day, premiered at SXSW Film Festival domestically and Hot Docs internationally, and will be available to stream on the NYTimes Op-Docs platform later this year. Her film Alpha Kings is now available to stream on The New Yorker. Her work has also screened at IFFR, True/False Film Festival, AFI Fest, Camden Film Festival, Champs Elysées Film Festival, Rooftop Films, AIFVF, Palm Springs International ShortFest, and DC/DOX, among others, and has been distributed and featured by Vimeo Staff Picks, Nowness, and Paper Magazine.

Faye was a Film Independent Producing Fellow in 2023 and she previously served as VP Development & Production for Los Angeles based Passage Pictures, overseeing development for the company alongside its CEO. She was Director of Acquisitions & Production for independent Film & Television distribution company FilmRise, where she sought to bring new and unique voices to the forefront; she championed the release of award winning documentary and narrative films, including Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Faye has served on multiple juries and industry panels, including the jury of the Bushwick Film Festival 2019. She participated as an executive decision-maker in the IFP Project Forum, the Hot Docs Project Forum, and the Sheffield DocFest project MeetMarket for several consecutive years.

She received her BA in American Studies from Cornell University and her MFA in Documentary Film & Video at Stanford University.
