Winners Awarded at the 10th Cyprus International Film Festival

The 10th Cyprus International Film Festival (CYIFF) award ceremony took place on September 27 at 'Technopolis 20' in Paphos.

According to a press release, the ceremony was presented by the director of the festival Petra Terzi along with the representative of the independent jury Natalie A Dalheimer.

There was a screening of the awarded short films “The Story Teller”, “Spooky & Linda” and the Golden Aphrodite winner feature film “Simshar”.

Member of the Jury Xeyang Hu said that he is honoured to be a VIP judge at the 10th CYIFF adding that this it is “a very high standard festival for independent filmmakers”. He also mentioned that he is currently in Cyprus in order to prepare his next feature Film “IQ Zero”, an international co-production involving Chinese, European and US cinema agents.

“It will be a high budget project of about 10 million euros. As Cyprus occupies a special geographical location at the junction of Europe, Asia and Africa and provides most of the specialized needs of this ambitious production we intend to shoot about 80% of the outdoor scenes locally”, he explained.

He added that he also plans to use a lot of the local production resources and that his film will feature the natural beauties and tourist facilities of Cyprus to the global market.
