The Festival aims at becoming an important meeting point for acknowledged and new filmmakers alike from all over the world, who will have the opportunity to promote their work and enjoy themselves, along with a numerous audience, in a dreamy place under the sound of Ionian sea waves. Our goal is to continue discovering and creating new “film corners” on many beaches and coastal areas of the island, so that in the future, during the Festival, the whole island of Kefalonia will transform into an endless open air cinema, always with free entrance for the audience.
