This is a documentary film festival born in 2015, with emphasis on international documentaries - with tributes, parallel events, educational zone, seminars and masterclasses, aiming to upgrade the cultural life of the wider region, to give the opportunity to a large group of people who have no access to cinemas or other major festivals to know the domestic and international Film production.
The main Festival takes place in Kalamata, during the last ten days of January and part of the program is screened in 8 other cities of Peloponnese. Of all the actions during the year, the goal is to get the unfamiliar audience in touch with the cinematographic documentary genre. The priority, is for the young audience to get in touch with the documentary and get involved actively and creatively with it, giving them the first motive to create their own productions.
