Who we are

The Chania Film Festival (CFF) is organized by the non-profit civil partnership Cultural Organization of Crete.

The Cultural Organization of Crete was founded in 2002 to promote and produce cultural, educational and artistic projects and publications.Cinema and education are at the heart of the COC, as the educational program CineMathimata has been successfully running since its establishment.

The Chania Film Festival is the fruit of synergies, collaborations and the intent to systematize all the film-related projects and activities of the COC.Since its foundation, the Crete Cultural Organization is constantly active in the fields of culture and education and has produced dozens of projects focusing on cinema, education, local history, rural tourism, the Cretan cuisine, and sustainable development.
