The Ministry of Education and Culture and the Rialto Theatre announce that the Call for Entries for the 13th CYPRUS FILM DAYS - International Film Festival 2015, is now open. The festival, which is being held for the 13th time this year, will host for the 5th international competition section entitled “Glocal Images”, in which filmmakers from around the globe and Cyprus are invited to submit their fiction films. The films participating in the competition section will be selected by the festival’s artistic committee: Dr. Costas Constandinides (Academic) Tonia Misiali (Director/Producer) and Stelana Kliris (Director/Producer). This year’s festival will take place from the 17th to the 26th of April 2015 in Nicosia and in Limassol as in previous years.

The Festival aims not only to broaden its appeal within its own borders, but to attract both industry and audiences from abroad by developing itself as a cinematic meeting point for the three continents surrounding Cyprus. The international competition section “Glocal Images” welcomes films that voice the diversity of local cultures and contribute innovative representations of subject matters that can be addressed to an international audience.

Our International Jury (the names of the jury members will be announced at a later stage) will award the following prizes to the films competing under the “Glocal Images” category:

- Glocal Images - Best Film Award accompanied by the amount of €6,000

- Glocal Images - Special Jury Award accompanied by the amount of €3,000
