International Film Festival of Patmos

International Film Festival of Patmos

The International Film Festival of Patmos is a non-profit organization, established in 2010 with a view to organizing an International Film Festival. Its motto is: “Understanding the World through Film”.

The Festival’s objectives are the creation of a new pole of attraction for Greek and foreign film directors to show their work, and the organization and hosting of one-of-a-kind seminars and exhibitions relating to cinema and the visual arts. Additionally, the Festival seeks to educate the public and contribute to its further cultural awakening, while respecting the particularity of Patmos; to create an alternative tourist event; and, to dynamically place the island on the international map of cultural tourism.

In collaboration with the Municipality of Patmos for the fifth year, the festival is organized in July (23-29) and within this framework, apart from projections of quality films, workshops and seminars, a short-film competition will also be held.
