Filming in Cyprus

Our Mission .

Acknowledging the power of cinema and its importance in shaping and moulding contemporary societies, the Department of Modern and Contemporary Culture has been actively contributing towards the development of filmmaking and film exhibition in Cyprus. 

A multifaceted policy has been developed, aiming to enhance film production and education. This is achieved through grants awarded to Cypriot filmmakers and producers, to complete and distribute their works internationally. By simultaneously supporting cinema clubs, local festivals and other stakeholders in the sector, Cypriot audiences can be acquainted with different creators and movements throughout the history of world cinema, cultivating their aesthetic sensibilities and developing their critical thinking.
