Animation Festival Cyprus
Animafest Cyprus Views of the World, started in 2002 as a documentary festival in a small village, and was called the Small Documentary Festival. It was later re-named International Countryside Documentary and Animated Film Festival Views of the World. The festival’s uniqueness is its setting in the countryside, and this continues to this day. As audiences have grown significantly in recent the festival has moved to a different village to accommodate the large number of spectators. It continues to draw a very diverse audience, from across the social spectrum. The fact that it draws young people from metropolitan areas to previously unknown rural areas we feel is a very important contribution to the country’s cultural life.
