The Organizing Committee
Animafest Cyprus Views of the world is the official Cyprus Animation Festival funded by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Cyprus. Since its inception in 2002, the festival has been organized in the countryside, and this practice continues to this day, giving it its unique character (Countryside Animafest Cyprus). The festival focuses on contemporary independent animated films from all over the world. It includes international and Cyprus competition sections with an international jury committee. Its various activities throughout the year include the annual Countryside Animafest Cyprus, expert seminars and workshops, academic forums, special screenings, etc. In this way the festival initiates international collaborations and provides opportunities for artistic growth. In general the festival contributes in every possible way in the development of the field of animation in Cyprus. In May 2013 the ASIFA Board approved the foundation of the ASIFA Cyprus chapter, based on the application by the artistic director of Animafest Cyprus Yiorgos Tsangaris.

Hambis Printmaking Museum was founded in November 2007 by the Cypriot printmaker Hambis and its principal goal is the promotion and development of the art of printmaking, both in Cyprus and internationally. The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Cyprus funds the Museum. The museum owns an extensive collection of over 3,000 original prints in every printmaking technique. The collection includes old books and maps, tools for all printmaking techniques, photographs, other documents etc. Prints in every method and technique, by artists from all over the world, and dating from the 16th century until today are included in the museum’s permanent collection. The goals of the Museum in the areas of artistic creation, education and research are realized through a variety of events and activities such as educational programs for adults and children, which include specialized tours and workshops, workshops on a variety of subjects for those interested in learning more about the art of printmaking, seminars, lectures and periodic exhibitions, and specialized workshops on various printmaking techniques, taught by professional printmakers and visiting academics from Cyprus and abroad. Furthermore the Museum offers hospitality to students and artists from abroad, in the framework of cultural exchange, a policy that the Museum has followed since its foundation. In 2017 the new Hambis Municipal Museum of Printmaking will be inaugurated in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. In this museum, situated in city’s cultural hub, visitors will become acquainted with the history of printmaking, its techniques and materials.
