9th International Short Film Festival of Cyprus

The International Short Film Festival of Cyprus is the official competition festival for short films in Cyprus, showcasing and celebrating an outstanding narrative, animated, documentary and experimental original short film content. Starting from 2019, the ISFFC is an official partner festival of the European Film Academy. Through the years, it has become an excellent platform for local and international filmmakers to showcase their work, and it maintains its reputation as an audience favourite.

With a developing presence in the short film arena, the ISFFC has become an ever growing Festival for shorts in the Eastern Mediterranean region, where established and emerging filmmakers enjoy the blissful experience of seeing their film on the big screen to packed audiences. 

The ISFFC aims to always be ahead of the curve when it comes to  integrating creativity and innovation  by introducing new technologies and innovative initiatives every year.  Alongside its main competition programme, the ISFFC organises some exciting and educational site-specific events in collaboration with local artists, various thematic screenings and masterclasses, aiming towards the integration of several art forms. Looking to explore the relation of poetry and film? Do you want to get industry insides or wonder how films are selected in some of the world's major festivals? Then, look for the ISFFC's parallel programme of events! It's all there.

The Festival week will culminate with the Awards ceremony in the national and international competition, with the Jury panel presenting the winners with generous cash and in-kind awards. The ISFFC Jury is comprised each year of five established international and Cypriot film professionals, academics,  festival directors and short film programmers.

The Festival was founded by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and Rialto Theatre in 1998. Initially, it showcased exclusively a national competition section, but, since 2011 it expanded into an international competition festival.

A week full of premiere screenings, night parties, eye-opening short films, daring documentaries, collaborations with local artists, networking events, and filmmaker panels, award presentations, and an enhanced programme of Cypriot films awaits ahead of us!
