The festival focuses on the three pillars: Archaeology, Ethnography and History and aspires to become a vessel of promoting and disseminating the cultural heritage of our homeland, Cyprus, through the art of documentary. At the same time, it acts as a platform of collecting, documenting and screening documentaries, which portray stories of people, countries, civilizations from all over the planet, making it both a national and an international festival.

The most important function of the festival however is its educational aspect, particularly the participation of students of all ages, not only as spectators but as creators as well, an aspect which is enriched every year and drives young people towards researching, documenting and presenting matters concerning cultural heritage and the history of Cyprus, through documentaries.
