YPERIA – One of the ancient names of Amorgos
Established on January 25, 1993, the goal and purpose of the Association is to promote and upgrade the spread of Culture and Tradition of the island, to cultivate environmental sensitivity and willingness to solve any kind of problems of the community.
The inspiration to organize the first Yperia in 2003 arose in view of the forthcoming Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.
It was also decided, that this international meeting would be an opportunity to honor the French producer Luc Besson, who, with his successful film “The Big Blue”, that was partly filmed in Amorgos, made the island known worldwide, generating of great benefit.
The International Amorgos Short Film Festival aims through the films to promote the culture and the history of Amorgos, Cyclades and Greece in general for a sustainable tourism and healthy environment for the generations to come.
