8th Beyond Borders | Kastellorizo International Documentary Festival

For its 8th edition, Beyond Borders returns to the basics: roots and soil. The materials that all humans are made of. The raw material of birth, flight, return and eternal silence.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne and the mandatory exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey, the Festival aspires to bring back the question of expatriation and uprooting to the present day and to critically reflect on it. To problematize with personal stories that end up being collective and to observe major developments in modern societies and how they affect the individual everyday life of all of us.

Stepping on the privileged field of audio-visual storytelling offered by the cinema, the 8th edition of Beyond Borders through its screenings and many parallel cultural activities (art exhibitions, book presentations, educational and artistic workshops and lectures, musical concerts and interludes) aims at the creative reconciliation with its audience and the production of an open reflection inviting us to consider whether what unites us is more than what divides us.

Setting a new record in the history of the institution, with the submission of 835 films from 93 different countries, the 8th edition of Beyond Borders welcomes its international audience to the coolest and most multicultural cine-event of the summer!
