Submissions for Kinofest 2009 are now closed

At the end of a nine-month process, strarted on February 2, 2009, we have closed the submissions for the current edition of Kinofest. We have received an overwhelmingly big number of films, from filmmakers, animators, schools and studios all over the world, for which we would like to thank you all. It will certainly be the fullest edition of Kinofest so far, in terms of great movies.
Therefore, the final evaluation of the works will take a little longer, and we’ll announce the finalists as well as the final programme for the 3 sections of the Festival (Fiction, Animation and Micromovie) no later than 11 October, 2009. So make sure you return to the site to find the updated information.

Kinofest presents AVON Movie for Life – a parallel short movie competition

We proudly announce a premiere of Kinofest 2009: the AVON Movie for Life short film contest, a parralel competition of our Festival, part of the Avon Campaign for early discovery of breast cancer. From 4 September to 11 October, we invite Romanian film producers (professional, student or amateur) to create short movies that illustrate, in a powerful and memorable way, the message of the Anti Breast Cancer Campaig: that self- and professional breast examination are the only ways to discover breast cancer in its early stages. We provoke you to create movies strong enough to convince every woman who sees them to perform the breast examination. The competition is open for Romanian film makers, so the Brief and the Regulations are available in Romanian only. Read more to find all the opportunities participants will have, including winning the prizes – a total of 3.000 euros.
