The Cyprus Fashion Film Festival is the most important film festival for fashion filmmakers and enthusiasts in Cyprus.

Our purpose is to celebrate the art of fashion films, the joy of fashion and the passion for filmmaking. We bring the world of fashion films to the big screen, complemented by live fashion shows, photography exhibition, creative collaborations and workshops.

We value your work and promote your fashion film all over the year on our social media with a rapidly growing number of followers. We give you space on our platform for background information regarding your music, your videos and your regular news.

You and your team members are welcome to join the glamorous Red Carpet Event and award ceremony taking place at Ceti Locale in Limassol on the 1st of June 2024.

After the festival, we're inviting you to join our podcast. We want to hear directly from you – the talented artists behind the films. Share your insights, inspirations, challenges, and untold stories that brought your cinematic visions to life on our esteemed stage.

Cyprus Fashion Film Festival is organized by “Cult Experiences”, an organization devoted in helping producers, costume designers, stylists, directors, actors, screenwriters, dancers, musicians and many other artists showcasing their work to the world.

    I had a fantastic experience at the Cyprus Fashion Film Festival. Winning four awards for my film “Circles” was remarkable, and the support of the CFFF team was phenomenal. Incredibly organized, it gave great exposure to filmmakers from across the world. I highly recommend the CFFF to any filmmaker looking for a prestigious and unforgettable event.
