Greeks Films is an Austin-based production company founded in 2001 by co-directors Duane Graves and Justin Meeks. To date, the pair have co-produced over a dozen short and feature length films – most of them distributed internationally.
Duane Graves was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. After receiving a degree in TV/Film from Texas A&M – Corpus Christi, he directed the critically-acclaimed documentary UP SYNDROME, an intimate portrait of his childhood friend born with Down Syndrome. The feature won several awards at festivals across the globe including Slamdance, and is currently available through Amazon Prime. Teaming with film school peer Justin Meeks, Graves then co-wrote/directed their debut narrative THE WILD MAN OF THE NAVIDAD, a drive-in style horror feature that premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival and was later released internationally by IFC Films. The pair’s sophomore effort, BUTCHER BOYS, was released domestically by eOne. Their dark Western, KILL OR BE KILLED, is now available in the US and UK from RLJE Films.
Justin Meeks was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Their first projects became a trilogy of experimental/horror short works co-produced by original THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE co-creator Kim Henkel, and were released on DVD by POP Cinema. Meeks then wrote, co-directed and starred in their comedic short, RIO PELIGROSO: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LEGENDARY COYOTE, which won the first round of director Kevin Smith’s Movies Askew Festival in 2006. Their sophomore horror feature, BUTCHER BOYS, also written and produced by Henkel, is now available internationally from eOne.
