The Amorgos Tourism Film Festival, an annual event taking place on the island of Amorgos, has become an official member of the International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT).
The Amorgos Tourism Film Festival is a four-day event, taking place annually on the Cycladic island of Amorgos. It is organized by the Cultural Association of Tholaria – Amorgos and the Aegialis Hotel & Spa in parallel with the YPERIA International Convention on Culture and Tourism.
It was established in 2010 and its main goal is to set up an international platform for the promotion of tourism through audio and visual material.
