Yesterday, at the first day of Kinofest, we’ve presented the premiere of the AVON Movie for Life film competition nominees. Just as a short recap, the competition was open for Romanian film makers (either professional or amateur) for 47 days (from 4 September to 20 October). During this period, we have received 41 films, out of which 26 were selected for the final stage and were presented yesterday, at The Light Cinema. These 26 films best matched the brief, according to the decision of Avon Cosmetics Romania.
At the Kinofest premiere, the crowd was really involved, watching the whole presentation and voting for the films, live, in parallel with the professional jury. Once again, the members of professional jury were:
CÄƒtÄƒlin Saizescu (director)
Emanuel LÄƒzÄƒrescu (film critic, Cinefan.ro editor)
Claudiu PÄƒun (director of photography)
Cristina Zaharia (film critic, editor Port.ro)
Andreea Catu (PR Specialist, Avon Cosmetics Romania)
Costin Radu (Managing Director IQads)
Now, you can see them and vote online for the 26 finalists on the official AVON Channel on YouTube. Each of these 3 types of votes (professional jury, Kinofest public and general public) counts for 33.3% of the final result. So, if you want to support your favourites, here’s your chance: cast your votes on YouTube.
When voting, please also keep in mind the initial brief requirments (read/download the brief here – Romanian only).
