Words on Film

Cyprus : Words on Film

The International Short Film Festival of Cyprus (Rialto Theatre, 13 - 19/10) takes the audience on a literary journey traversing the art of cinema: the event “Words on Film” reveals the inherent connection between literature and the moving image.

Literature and Cinema are two forms of art, intrinsically connected since the early history of Cinema and up until contemporary times. The world film archive includes innumerable short and feature films based on or inspired by literary works. Hence, this year’s edition explores and focuses on the multi-dimensional relation between Cinema and Literature, with the invaluable contribution of acclaimed Greek writer and director, Achilleas Kyriakides.

1st Part:
Discussion about the relation between literature and cinema with this year’s Jury President, Greek writer and director Achilleas Kyriakides.
Coordinated by: Yiorgos Trillidis

2nd Part: Words on film by 4 writers
Words, image and sound. In the second part of this event, four talented Cypriot writers will recite their own literary work, inspired by four experimental short films without dialogue. A live recitation session will accompany the screening of each of the following short films:
Maria Ioannou - Black Mountain by Marianna Christophides, 12’, Cyprus
Constantina Soteriou - Proof of Memory by Yosuke Kawata, 10’, Japan
Stephanos Stavrides – 8th Continent by George Zois, 11’, Greece
