International Film Festival of Patmos

Exploring Patmos Sailing Holidays area

This festival started taking place on Patmos in 2010 and it is usually held in mid-July in an open air theatre, especially designed for this purpose, overlooking the port of Patmos and the Monastery of St. John at Hora. The IFFP is the meeting point for foreign and Greek filmmakers and it is mostly an artistic event but at times it may host some kind of competition too. Many interesting parallel events, like seminars and workshops, give visitors the opportunity to mingle with a multinational artistic crowd.
