… a digital film festival based in Bucarest, since 2007, one of the most significant in the Central-East Europe. Our goal is to promote in Romania the new film making, the diversity and creativy in video art, innovating technics, interesting artists. We bring together superpremium films in very different styles and genres - about 300 of the best shorts in the world, from 25-35 countries; most of them are Romanian premieres (85-95%).
The festival is an international competition of shorts, but also includes other events and projects: presentations and screenings of invited artists/films/festivals, music concerts, live performances, a virtual art gallery where we present interesting "non-moving" digital art: graphic-design, photography, illustration. We would like to offer larger perspectives to our public, to gather all digital trends and new techiniques, to have films and music, graphic and video art. Our latest project is an educational programme developed in high schools, in order to popularize the digital film technics among the young. Although our main event is once a year, we do have lots of activities all year long.
… never getting bored of films. We work through a cultural non-profit organisation (Asociatia Kinofest), and we do about 80% of this festival. Kinofest is an independent project, self-supported (we sell publicity in the festival - the brands reach their customers in unconventional ways, within a relevant context), fulfilled pretty much through voluntary work (here are our volunteers!).
