Mayor of Limassol

Address of the Mayor of Limassol, Mr. Andreas Christou

at the 13th International Film Festival - Cyprus Film Days 2015 (17-26 April 2015)

It is with great pleasure that I welcome the 13th International Film Festival “Cyprus Film Days 2015”, which has been upgraded to a festival with an international competition section.

One cannot help but notice that the Festival has acquired a new dimension, bringing Cypriot filmmakers and spectators in contact with the international film production and high quality cinema and, namely, with fiction films.

The Municipality of Limassol wholeheartedly supports this effort and strongly believes not only in its success, but also in its contribution to the cultural life of the city and Cyprus in general.

The appreciation and interest of the audience in the festival, as well as its continuous presence for the last thirteen years, clearly demonstrate its importance and role.

The Festival’s organizers – the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Rialto Theatre – must be warmly congratulated for this effort.
