The International Short Film Festival of Cyprus is the official competition festival for short films in Cyprus. The Festival was set up by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture and Rialto Theatre in 2000. Initially, it involved only a national competition section, but, since 2011 it expanded into an international competition.
The ISFFC’s main objective is the promotion of cinematographic art through a diverse showcase of the best short films from Cyprus and across the globe. It awards the work of talented filmmakers who successfully use creative cinematic language forms and effectively tell a story in a short film.
The primary focus of the annual, seven day festival in Limassol, is its International and National Competition. Each year, fictional, animated shorts and documentaries up to a maximum of 25 minutes compete for the festival’s generous awards and prizes.
