ABOUT US


The Paphos International Film Festival (PIFF) is an annual festival held every year in Paphos in the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.


PIFF is committed to supporting authentically independent SHORT films and it aims to research, promote and develop the art of independent film making. We support low (or no) budget films because we strongly believe that they are worth a chance. PIFF aims to become a platform giving a voice to directors and filmmakers who work with very little but have a lot to give. PIFF supports films that push the limits of independent cinema – presenting quality short films from around the world to Paphos residents and visitors. PIFF is committed to amplifying diverse voices and exhibiting cutting-edge programming in narrative, documentary and experimental film.

Our categories include films up to 20 minutes from Cypriot and International filmmakers, student films up to 15 minutes (both Cypriot and international).

The festival focuses on community, inclusivity and good times. It aims to travel across borders in order to develop a spirit of friendship and cooperation with filmmakers from Cyprus and from all over the world.

Nicolas Iordanou and Sylvia Nicolaides
