A few words about the Kastellorizo ​​Festival


The Kastellorizo ​​Festival "Beyond the Borders", which is organized by the Hellenic Foundation for Historical Studies (IDISME) with the support of Ecrans des Mondes (Paris), the Revival Association of Kastellorizo, Sydney and the Municipality of Megisti under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, offers every year to the Greek, European and international public a selection of documentaries (themes) with thematic axes History and Society. The aim of this "eclectic" Documentary Festival is to honor remarkable examples of cinematic art and storytelling, which deal with events, issues and people who have influenced the countries, peoples and cultures of the world.


The Festival takes place every year in the last week of August on the edge of the Aegean, in the idyllic Kastellorizo, an island of incomparable natural beauty. Every year "Beyond the Borders" organizes a variety of parallel cultural activities on the island, offering a great celebration of culture and cinema to the permanent residents and visitors of the island.
