In 1954 he starts filming his first film Magic City. Throughout his carrier Koundouros has participated in many domestic and international film festivals, receiving many distinctions with most notable the Best Direction Award in both Thessaloniki International Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival for the film Young Aphrodites in 1963.
