Kinofest is the first digital film festival in Romania, since 2007

The 5th edition of the festival will take place on 28-30 October 2011. We plan to present more films, concerts and various events and exhibitions.

Kinofest is the first and most important digital film festival in Romania, and one of the most significant in the Central-East Europe.

It is an independent project that has the explicit goal of promoting young film-makers, artists and their work – film, music and visual art - wise; and also, to cultivate the interest in and promote the arts and media culture among the general public throught independent film, video and new media making. We manage to bring every year a premium film selection that is the best in Romania.

The film competition includes 3 sections (Animation, Fiction, Micromovie), with 3 distinct juries. Each competition will have only one winner: Best Animation, Best Fiction, Best Micromovie.

The festival includes various events and projects: the film competition, presentations and screenings of invited artist/films/festivals, music concerts, live performances… And our latest project is a virtual art gallery where artists can show there work; at the "Exhibition" page we present interesting "non-moving" digital art: graphic-design, photography, illustration. We would like to offer larger perspectives to our public.

We want to make Kinofest a phenomena, to gather all digital trends and new techiniques, to have films and music, graphic and video art.

I therefore, invite you to join us once again in this ambitious project, in Bucharest, hoping only for the best.
