CCC19 Film Festival Applications are now open

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 film-making talents as well.

    • comic book
    • superhero
    • fan-fiction
    • parody
  • Films must have been finished not earlier than May 1st 2019. Works in progress are not accepted.

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