Drama Festival travels all around Cyprus

It’s time for more film with the Drama Short Film Festival heading to Limassol, Nicosia, Larnaca and Paphos for two-day screenings of Greek films that have garnered awards and distinctions.

The Short Film Festival in Drama, recognising the need for further promotion of short films, has included in its annual programming, screenings in more cities. Over the last 25 years the films that have received awards and distinctions at the Short Film Festival in Drama have been taking a “long voyage”, as the organisers say, to meet movie-going audiences around the world.

Germany, Egypt, Cyprus, France, Australia, Italy, USA, Athens, Thessaloniki, as well as 80 cities all over Greece, have become stations, ports and destinations of the voyage. On February 10 and 12 it will stop by Cine Studios in Nicosia, while on February 10 and 11 it will be in both Larnaca and Paphos simultaneously. The Limassol screenings will take place on February 11 and 12.

Entrance to all of the events is free and the screenings include English subtitles.
