Ramfis Myrthil 

Ramfis Myrthil is a New York-based filmmaker who loves telling New York stories. He works to produce narrative features that reflect the best, most captivating parts of his community – passion, integrity, and honor.

A founding partner and co-President of Beast of the East Productions (BOTEP), the highlights of Ramfis’ career are ever-growing. The premiere of his film, “The Broken Ones,” sold out the opening night of SOHO 2017 and is in negotiations to sell. Most recently, Ramfis wrapped in L.A. on “A Boy, A Girl, and A Dream,” and is currently in production on his next film, “D’Evils.”

His previous film, “Good Business,” featured Academy Award winner Mercedes Ruehl, winning two Best Comedy awards before being picked up by Shorts International.

Ramfis’ proudest achievements are producing The Zombie’s first-ever music video “Any Other Way,” and premiering “Love and The Small Print,” at Cannes, where Shorts International pick it up for worldwide distribution.

Ramfis’ company BOTEP went on to produce “Bridge and Tunnel,” which played at over 40 film festivals, earning a dozen awards and over thirty nominations. It would continue on to a limited theatrical run before being picked up by Amazon.

In 2013, Ramfis produced the Hurricane Sandy documentary “Powerless,” as part of a campaign for hurricane relief in Long Beach NY. The city awarded it a special Proclamation.

Ramfis’ passion for film is matched by his passion to giving back to the community. He does this through participation with non-profits Mythic Bridge, the I Can Still Do That Foundation, and Blacks on Wall Street.

Ramfis is also member of BAFTA NY, The Friars Club, Toastmasters International, and the advisory board of the Long Island Film/TV Foundation.
