International Short Tourism Film Festival
The International Short Tourism Film Festival is an annual 4-day event, with every day screenings, held during the works of the YPERIA International Convention on Culture and Tourism.
The Festival’s main intention is to set up an international platform with a view to encouraging global tourism through audio-visual media. Every year, the best films, documentaries and activities that contribute to the development of domestic and foreign tourism and the implementation of green practices, are nominated for an award. Tourism films are a good opportunity to address important issues and highlight the cultural and environmental richness of a place.
The International Short Tourism Film Festival was established in 2010 by the Cultural Association of Tholaria – Aegiali at the occasion of the 8th YPERIA International Convention on Culture and Tourism.
The Festival aims:
- To contribute to the development of domestic (particularly on Amorgos and the Cyclades islands) and foreign tourism.
- To popularize and encourage the implementation of green practices in tourism driven by the need for social responsibility and sustainable development.
- To encourage short film production and foster a spirit of friendship and cooperation among producers from around the world.
