The Festival aims:
- To contribute to the development of domestic (particularly on Amorgos and the Cyclades islands) and foreign tourism.
- To popularize and encourage the implementation of green practices in tourism driven by the need for social responsibility and sustainable development.
- To encourage short film production and foster a spirit of friendship and cooperation among producers from around the world.
