The Cyprus Film Days 2015 festival has an international competition section entitled “Glocal Images”, in which filmmakers from around the globe and Cyprus are invited to submit their fiction films and compete for a prize fund of 10,000 Euro. “Glocal Images” welcomes films that voice the diversity of local cultures and contribute innovative representations of subject matters that can be addressed to an international audience.
Cyprus Film Days aims not only to broaden its appeal within its own borders, but to attract both industry and audiences from abroad by developing itself as a cinematic meeting point for the three continents surrounding Cyprus.
An International Jury will award the following prizes to the films competing under the “Glocal Images” category:
- Best Film Award accompanied by the amount of 6,000 Euro
- Special Jury Award accompanied by the amount of 3,000 Euro
- Best Director Award accompanied by the amount of 1,000 Euro
The films participating in the competition section will be selected by the festival’s artistic committee: Dr. Costas Constandinides (Academic), Tonia Misiali (Director/Producer) and Stelana Kliris (Director/Producer).
The 2015 Festival will take place from the 17th to the 26th of April 2015 in Nicosia and in Limassol.
