Objectives

The Arkhaios Cultural Heritage and Archaeology Film Festival is an annual event, part of the Archaeology Month, taking place in the United States.


  • It is intended to be an educational event to showcase the discovery of past cultures gained from archaeological research, and illustrated by documentary films.

  • It is also to encourage initiatives and exchanges between the different actors of the world of archaeological films whose productions, often of great artistic and scientific quality, are unknown and suffer from the weakness of the traditional distribution channels.
  • It is, finally, to trigger the interest of local film-makers to apply their art to the State history.

The historical knowledge of our cultural heritage is an important basis for the development of our culture. The task of archaeology and historic preservation is to discover and preserve the cultural heritage.

 

The purpose of projecting films at the Festival is the dissemination of this knowledge to make past civilizations better understood to people from different backgrounds.
