Transylvania International Film Festival
May 25, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 3, 2018 @ 5:00 pm CEST
Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF), presented by Romanian Film Promotion, is the first and the biggest international feature film festival in Romania.
Founded in 2002, in the town of Cluj-Napoca, Transilvania IFF has grown rapidly to become the most important film-related event in Romania and one of the most spectacular annual events in the region. It is a member of the Alliance of Central and Eastern European Film Festivals (CENTEAST) and it is supported by the Creative Europe – MEDIA Programme. In 2011, Transilvania IFF was accredited by the FIAPF, which places it among the 40 most important festivals in the world.
Transilvania IFF’s main goal is the promotion of cinematic art by presenting some of the most innovative and spectacular films of the moment that feature both originality and independence of expression, that reflect unusual cinematic language forms or focus on current trends in youth culture. Dedicated to 1st and 2nd time directors, the Official Competition focuses on discovering new voices.
Transilvania IFF is a project partner of LIM (Less Is More), the European platform for project development of limited budget feature films created by Le Groupe Ouest. Previously, the festival hosted the launch of the new platform #FEEDback (Film Eastern Europe Dialogue, 2015) and regional editions of The Pitch, in partnership with ShortsTV.
The festival also developed a strong educational platform for children, through EducaTIFF (awarded Best Educational Project in Romania, at Education Awards Gala, 2011 edition), and teenagers, through Let’s Go Digital! The intensive workshop gives teenagers the opportunity to cover all the steps of filmmaking under the supervision of film professionals and using modern equipment.
