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.
