The ‘Lemesos International Documentary Festival’ is organized every August by the non-profit organization Brave New Culture. The Festival is dedicated in presenting contemporary creative documentaries in Cyprus. In addition, through the organization of workshops and lectures, it offers the possibility to local professional directors and producers to get acquainted with the latest trends and tendencies in the documentary genre and to get informed about the prospects of fund raising and promoting their own projects in the broader European spectrum.
Our intention is to search and invite films that are innovative and eye-opening in their socio-political approach but which are also interesting in cinematographic terms. The main objective of our Organization is to establish the ‘Lemesos International Documentary Festival’ as a quality documentary festival which encourages the public to experience a creative, timely and rich experience, full of stories and images characteristic of our times and which derive from our surrounding civilizations and cultures.
