Patrick recognises the extraordinary in the ordinary, broadening our understanding of what it means to be human.
"I tell stories that are anchored in real feelings. The lighting and camerawork capture the most beautiful version of real places. These are found moments set within spaces that breathe with realism, a heightened reality"
With a reputation built on powerful, emotionally charged content, Patrick's storytelling is driven by a belief that images speak to the soul of the viewer. Fileti works primarily with non-actors to capture life as it is, carefully framed and distilled. His mission is to uncover the beauty in the everyday; to band the emotion and aesthetic around one simple core idea. He plays the lines between documentary, fiction and experimental cinema to craft films that focus on concepts and feelings above all else.
Fileti has created award-winning campaigns with global brands Google, Canon, Lexus, Porsche, WWF, Sky News amongst others. He has won illustrious international awards including a Titanium and Grand Prix Cannes Lion for The World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour. Notably his work for Coca-Cola has been accepted into the MOMA in New York as well as the Clio Hall of Fame.
His most recent film Inferno, an explosive documentary shot in Tultepec, Mexico, took home the Academy-accredited Best Short Film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, as well as an exclusive premiere on Nowness.
