"Actors must act, writers must write, film makers must make films...,directors, producers and audiences will come...That's Entertainment."
Free Submissions for all comedy films in our festival!
Welcome to the second edition of the International Film Festival! In the midst of daily hustle and contemporary challenges, we've chosen to place smiles and joy at the forefront. The theme for this edition is COMEDY, as we recognize that the world is filled with worries, stress, anxiety, and depression. Through humor and creativity, we aim to provide a well-deserved break and bring laughter back into our lives.
We're thrilled to announce that, to support this initiative, we've decided to waive the submission fee for all comedy films. Thus, we encourage content creators to share funny stories with the world and bring a smile to our audience's faces. Don't miss the opportunity to be part of this memorable edition of our festival!
Let's together transform this experience into a celebration of humor and bring light into the darkness. We look forward to discovering remarkable comedies and enjoying the magic of cinematic comedy together!"Bistrita Romania International Film Festival is an independent movie event organized by The Actors Caravan and their partners. The first edition happened at Teleky Castle, and we were thrilled to have a big audience. In an atmosphere that felt like a film set, people enjoyed watching 32 short films from around the world.
In a world dealing with challenges on political, economic, climate, cultural, and spiritual fronts, our goal is to create a safe space for both artists and the audience. A place where love for art takes center stage. If you're a talented artist, filmmaker, editor, producer, writer, or director, we want you to be part of it! We're on the lookout for artists who are making fresh content in a wide range of movie styles.
