Attending the Festival
July 28th – August 1st 2016


Individual tickets and general passes are available for sale at our kiosk on Miaouli Square in the center of Hermoupolis starting July 26th. Tickets may also be purchased individually, screening by screening. If you purchase a general pass, you must still retrieve individual screening tickets for each screening you wish to attend by showing your pass at either our kiosk or at the screening locations themselves. Individual tickets are €3 and general passes are €15.

Workshops, talks and other festival events are free and open to the general public.


Ferry boats leave Piraeus every day for Syros and the journey lasts approximately 3 ½ hours. Ferries also leave from other islands, though schedules may vary day to day. Please visit or contact a Syros ferry agency for more specific schedules.

Syros is also serviced by a daily Aegean Airlines flight from Athens, lasting 25 minutes.


Most festival screenings and events take place in or walking distance from the main port town Hermoupolis (where all ferries arrive). There are many hotels and guesthouses in Hermoupolis. Car, moped and bicycle rental available. For some of the more far away screenings, SIFF provides free shuttles from the town center.
