    The history, tradition, and archeology of Cyprus are captured through the eyes of 250 students in 24 documentaries created through the Educational Department of the AEI Film Festival (International Festival of Archaeological, Ethnographic, and Historical Documentary of Cyprus) SYNEKPEDEFSI.

    Pantheon Cinema, located on Diagorou Street in Nicosia, will open its doors on June 15 and 16, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM and from 5:00 pm to 9:00 PM on both days, inviting us to enjoy—free of charge—the masterpieces of middle school, high school, and technical school students from our island.

    With the help of their teachers and training from professional directors of the nonprofit cultural organization AEI AUDIOVISUAL FORUM, young filmmakers, screenwriters, editors, musicians, and reporters have been creating a rich archive of our country for the past seven years, enriching the documentation of its history and cultural heritage.

    The screening schedule, by school, is posted on the AEI Film Festival website (www.aei-filmfestival.org), Facebook, and Instagram.

    The event concludes on Sunday, June 16, at 8:00 PM, with the award ceremony for the winners of this year’s SYNEKPEDEFSI initiative. In the cinema foyer, a photography exhibition with snapshots from this year’s school seminars and documentary shoots will be open on both days.

    This year’s SYNEKPEDEFSI participants included the secondary schools of Latsia, Constantinopoleos, Agiou Ioannou Chrysostomou, Soleas, Agiou Vasiliou, Neapolis of Limassol, Pancyprian Nicosia with three productions from three different student groups, Dasoupolis High School also with three productions, the A' Technical Schools of Nicosia and Limassol, the Regional Secondary Schools of Trachoni and Livadia, the high schools of Agiou Nicholaou, Agias Fylaxeos, Linopetra, Kykkou A' of Nicosia, Aradippou and Agiou Neophytou of Paphos, the regional secondary and high school of Lefkara, and the High School and Technical school of Agiou Charalambous of Emba.
