Our Story

THE BEST OF THE FIRST!

The Cyprus International Film Festival (CYIFF) is holder of the EFFE Label. The EFFE Label is Europe’s quality stamp for remarkable arts festivals showing their engagement in the field of the arts, community involvement and international openness. CYIFF takes place annually under the umbrella of the Cultural International Festivals network. Our goal is to be the best European Film Festival for first shown filmmakers. The festival is a non profit organization inaugurated on March 23, 2006 by the Cypriot Minister of Education and Culture, Mr Pefkios Georgiades. Since then, we have demonstrated our commitment to professionally organizing this event annually despite many obstacles.

The Cyprus International Film Festival(CYIFF) takes place annually, since 2006, on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. The Cyprus International Film Festival is the biggest of artistic high value cinema event of the whole region, spilling over Cyprus' boundaries and spreading over the whole region with repercussions reaching worldwide. CΥIFF is the first internationally oriented film festival which offers new and upcoming directors in multiple sectors of entertainment (such as feature films,short films, animations, music videos, dance films and video art) the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of a jury of internationally acclaimed cinema experts, directors and actors. CYIFF has a competitive section. Films produced the last 36 months, by emerging directors are selected for the screening program. CYIFF promotes both Cypriot film directors and Cypriots artists living abroad through the film category "Nostimon Himar" and awarded Cypriot Film Directors, as well as Cyprus as a new film oriented travel destination. The festival and the parallel events create an important meeting place for Cypriots and foreign filmmakers. The 'CΥIFF - Cyprus International FilmFestival' is the brainchild of a group of dedicated volunteer individuals,event organizers, film producers, cinema experts, multimedia and audio visual specialists.

"The Best of the 1st!" Cyprus International Film Festival's mission is to support the first shown filmmakers with their first short or feature film, to meet and exchange cultures for the further development of Cinematographic Art in Cyprus, to promote our historical and cultural heritage,to upgrade our tourism product and to internationally promote our alumni participants.
