CYIFF - Cyprus International Film Festival History

CΥIFF operates within the network of Cultural International Film Festivals and 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.

The awards are the "GOLDEN APHRODITE", production and crew services, shooting equipment facilities. Equally unique is the condition that these prizes must be utilized for their next project and spent in Cyprus and/or Greece. The volunteers are eligible to scholarships in prestigious Universities and Film Programs.

The 'CΥIFF - Cyprus International Film Festival - Golden Aphrodite' is the brainchild of a group of dedicated individuals, event organizers, film producers, cinema experts, multimedia and audio visual specialists.

The Cyprus International Film Festival - Golden Aphrodite takes place annually, since 2006, on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. It was inaugurated by Minister of Education and Culture Mr Pefkios Georgiades and is supported by the Ministry of Tourism in Cyprus.

The Cyprus International Film Festival - Golden Aphrodite is the biggest both of glamour (red carpet, black tie) and of artistic high value cinema event of the whole region spilling over Cyprus' boundaries and spreading over the whole region with repercussions reaching worldwide.
