Welcome to Kimolos International Film Festival!
The 3rd Kimolos International Film Festival will be held on June 21 – 28, 2021 at multiple locations across the beautiful island of Kimolos in Greece, inviting the audience to discover visionary filmmakers.
Kimolos International Film Festival is a prominent film festival, showcasing a selection of independent films. The festival’s programme line-up includes a variety of feature films. The Official Selection/Competition is an international non-specialized competition, presenting six (6) feature films, completed after the 1st of January 2020. All the films are Greek Premieres! The films will compete for the Golden Tree Award and the Best Director Award.
The festival director, Manuel de Coco, selects films for the competition and appoints at least five (5) members of the jury to the International Competition. The festival also features panel discussions with personalities of the entertainment world.
We believe that our film festival will become a “must” for everyone related to the cinema industry.
