Kythera on the French Riviera

Dear Friends of Kythera,

good news on the film front: two of our Kythera short films (one with the same title as the feature "Winter on Kythera" which is premiering this weekend, and another called "Over the Edge"), have been selected by Marche du Film, the governing body of the Cannes film Festival, for inclusion in the official "Short Film Corner" section.
And so our Island will not only be seen by the top international film industry executives who make the decisions about where new movies will be made, but our island will also be presented alongside the other great film locations showcased at the most prestigious premiere film festival in the world. 
Maria Thanas, above, stars in the short films shot on Kythera which have been accepted to the Short Film Corner at Cannes this year. 
According to the blurb on the the Short Film Corner website:
• the film will benefit from a prime viewing position within the Short Film Corner
• the film will be accessible to all Festival-goers via the Digital Film Library
• the film will be referenced on and in the Catalogue du court
• the film can be viewed by selected professionals at an online private screening after the event.
• Your participation the Short Film Corner will increase the chances of seeing your film selected by international festivals, as well as revealing your talent to potential partners and diffusers.

The wild west coast of Kythera, where much of the films were shot, is as windy as it is spectacular. 

Last Chance for Tickets to the Premiere!

Tickets are still available for our screenings this coming weekend in Sydney (not many left!)  and Brisbane - so both will be great Kytherian events. In addition to the main film and two exclusive previews from my other Kytherian feature film (An Island Named Desire, coming out later in the year). And I'm putting together a 20 minute collection of new drone footage shot over many beautiful sights on the island. If you're at the premiere you'll be able to show off your Kytherian geography expertise by calling out the name of the places shown before it is revealed as text at the end of each clip. I'm pretty certain that at least some of the natural beauty which will be revealed will be unknown to you, because even after more than 50 visits to the island myself I still regularly discover stunning new vistas.
Tickets to the films are available at

I hope to see you there!
