Film fans enjoy some of last year’s screenings.

A special film festival is being held for the third year running on one of Greece’s most far-flung islands, Kastellorizo.

The Beyond the Borders festival will run from Aug. 26 to Sept. 2 and organizers say they want to make the island a meeting point for the creators of historical and sociopolitical documentaries by attracting acclaimed figures in cinema, the arts and culture from around the world.

The Hellenic Institute of Historical Research is organizing the festival which also sees cooperation between the island and the nearby Turkish city of Kas.
