The i.P.A.S. Film Festival is dedicated to the work of filmmakers with defiantly independent political/activist and cinematic visions. Thus, the Festival offers a unique mix of short films coming from all genres (narrative, animation, documentary) and places, focusing on filming work that is truly poignant and revolutionary in either form or content.

Now in our 2nd year, i.P.A.S. Film Festival seeks short films that celebrate independent / radical visions, offering a vivid platform that connects filmmakers from all over the world with one another and our loyal audience.

    Unfortunately I could not come to iPAS festival, but the communication was great! After the festival Prodromos Trochidis has sent me a very detailed and personalised email regarding my film and the reaction on it during the festival! I was really very touched by this, it is very important for each director to know how the things went, I'm sure. Thanks for the work to all the team! Happy to be a part of this festival!
