filmOne of the many parallel event sections of the Cyprus Comic Con is an in-house film festival specializing in genre short films (sci-fi, horror, fantasy, fan films etc) & following last years successful film screenings it is upgraded to a worldwide competition for this years edition.

We are also very excited to announce that this years edition also marks the beginning of a yearly partnership with the official International Short Film Festival of Cyprus (ISFFC) with specialized sections hosted in both festivals.

A jury of acclaimed filmmakers and comic book artists will give out a “Best of Con” award worth 2000€ in post production services from one of the islands premium production houses. Beyond our jury award, the top-5 shortlisted films for the prize will be also screened in October at the International Short Film Festival of Cyprus, as part of a specific section.

Submissions from all over the world are accepted but we encourage local genre filmmakers to participate and show off their film making talents. The selected films will be screened at this years Cyprus Comic Con on 29th of August @ the Filoxenia Conference Center in Nicosia. Late deadline for film registrations is August 23, 2015.
