Welcome to the Symi International Film Festival website

The festival is organised by a group of film lovers who are resident on the Greek island of Symi, or have a close relationship with the island. The festival normally is in September each year. It is also part of the Main Symi Festival that runs from July to September.

2020- due to Covid the festival has had to be postponed until May 2021 (we hope).

Screenings are open air and there is no entrance fee to watch the films.

Symi is close to Rhodes and has an almost daily ferry service to and from Rhodes.


Update on the situation due to COVID:-
We have not had any further information from The Periferia (The South Aegean Government) regarding permission to go ahead with the Symi International Film Festival this September (2020). We are aware of the Mayor of Symi's thoughts which coincide with the points outlined below.
We are aware that Kastelorizo has gone ahead and held their Documentary Festival.
However given the nature of Symi Island and the fact that the Symi Festival, The Symi Shrimp Festival, The Panaghia of The Virgin Mary celebrations (normally a national holiday) and all other religious festivals have been cancelled, together with the increasing risks of the pandemic in Greek islands it would be inappropriate to go ahead with screenings in September.  
In addition the much reduced visitor numbers here at the moment would significantly reduce our audience numbers.
Consequently it is the organisers' opinion that the chosen films would be best served with screenings in May 2021.
Dates will be confirmed as soon as possible.
