Castellorizo - the Aegean Island where Documentaries meet History & Culture.

 “Beyond Borders” International Documentary Festival is rooted on the idyllic island of Castellorizo on the edge of the Aegean Sea, a place of breath-taking natural beauty and huge historical heritage.

 “Beyond Borders” Festival offers European, Mediterranean and overseas audiences once a year, a collection of compelling films dealing with historical, cross-cultural events, trends and personalities that have shaped our countries, peoples and civilizations. The objective of this "boutique" documentary festival is to celebrate the excellence in cinematographic storytelling centered on History and Society. Beyond Borders is about History now and before, here and everywhere.

This one-week Festival offers the chance to celebrate culture and innovative cinematography all the while organizing a multitude of cultural side-events that appeal to island natives and visitors alike.

 

“Beyond Borders” is organized by the Hellenic History Foundation, in co-organization with the Region of South Aegean, Ecrans des Mondes (Paris), The Society for Restoration of Megisti, Castellorizo (Sydney), held under the auspices of the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad, of the Municipality of Megisti, and the Embassy of Australia in Athens, the Embassy of the U.S. in Athens and the Embassy of Israel in Athens. The main sponsors are The Hellenic Parliament, the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Secretariat General for the Aegean and Island Policy, the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation and EKOME Media.
