About

We are heading for the 8th edition of the festival, which will take place on 26-28 September 2014, in Bucharest

Kinofest is the first and most important digital film festival in Romania, since 2007. And one of the most significant in the Central-East Europe.

The film competition has 3 sections (Animation, Fiction, Micromovie), with distinct juries. The prizes are: Best Animation, Best Fiction, Best Micromovie, and, if our budget will allow us, we'll have another 2 prizes: The Jury's Prize for Animation and Fiction.

The Micromovie section will take place online, between 1-27 September: the selected films will be uploaded on the Kinofest Youtube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/MrKinofest?feature=mhee ), and they will be voted by the public.

The festival includes various events and projects: the film competition, 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.

Starting from 2013, we're working in developing the Kinofest Youtube Cannel. We publish there films from our official selection, and also any production that gathers our artistic standards, if the producer wants to be part of our project. The best films from the Kinofest Youtube channel (that weren't already presented in the festival) will be projected at the 2014 edition, in a special programe.

There are more than 4 years since we started on our Facebook page to promote every day a shortfilm, and we called this rubric Kinofest Daily Film. More recently we started this also on our Twitter profile.

We happily accept film proposals for the Youtube channel and for Facebook/Twitter, there is no limit about the production date!

Kinofest 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.

I therefore invite you to join us once again in our project, in Bucharest, hoping only for the best!
