The Deputy Ministry of Culture of Cyprus and the Rialto Theatre launch a call for submissions of feature films in the two Competition Sections of “Cyprus Film Days”, the official international film festival of Cyprus.
The Festival aims at broadening its horizons beyond the geographical boundaries of Cyprus, as well as attracting international film industry professionals and audiences, thus turning Cyprus into a meeting hub for the three neighbouring continents.
The 21st edition of Cyprus Film Days IFF will take place between 21-29 April 2023 both in Nicosia and Limassol.
The feature films to be submitted must be 2021 or 2022 productions.
