Syros International Film Festival 2019


The Syros International Film Festival (SIFF) presents for the 7th consecutive year, from 16 to 21 July 2019, a series of film screenings, musical performances, and workshops which take place all around the island of Syros, highlighting the unique locations, suggesting new possibilities at the intersection of site and cinema.

For its seventh edition, SIFF’s program explores the theme of “Overexposure,” ranging from the photographic process to the saturation of representation, from Mediterranean light to information overload. Implementation of the Festival is realized with the exclusive support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), which has supported SIFF extensively since 2014.

Founded in 2013, the Syros International Film Festival embeds a wide spectrum of cinema into the unique setting of Syros. Six days of screenings, workshops, performances, lectures and parties highlights the island’s cultural heritage, re-activating sites including shipyards, abandoned fields, a former quarry and a seaside dock. The festival’s thematic curatorial approach incorporates various cinematic genres into programs – fiction, documentary, experimental, narrative – exposing audiences to new types of cinema in accessible, site-specific programs.
