Calling out to all local and international filmmakers!

Applications for Cyprus Comic Con 2019 Film Festival are now officially open! One of the many sections of the con is an in-house film festival specialising in screening genre short films. Submissions from all over the world are accepted and celebrated just like in the past 4 years. Being based in Cyprus, we offer a platform for local filmmakers to participate and show off their filmmaking talents as well.

For the first time ever, our film competition will feature two separate categories, the international and the local one.

To qualify for submission as a “short film”, the duration must be longer than 2 minutes and less than 25 minutes and must have at least one (or a combination) of the following themes: horror, fantasy, science fiction, comic book, superhero, fan-fiction and parody. Films must have been finished not earlier than May 1st 2016, while works in progress are not accepted.

The selected films will be screened at next year’s Cyprus Comic Con on 20th and 21st of April 2019 at the State Fare in Nicosia.
