Preparing for the 7th edition: 27-29 September 2013

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.
Starting from this year, the Micromovie section will take place online, between 1-30 September: the selectes 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. Our latest project is an educational programme developed in high schools, in order to popularize the digital film technics among the young.

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.

We are heading for the 7th edition of the festival, which will take place on 27-29 September 2013. I therefore, invite you to join us once again in this ambitious project, in Bucharest, hoping only for the best.
