Starting this year, in 2016, on it’s 5th edition, the Festival is moving ONLINE! All films selected this year will be screened on the Festival’s VIMEO Channel that will be revealed soon.

“The great success of the Festival has brought us to take it online and to make it a truly international event that can be enjoyed by everyone worldwide” – said Daria Trifu, Director of the Festival.

The Festival has been recognized by the IMDB and all Awards from previous years have been listed. Visit the Festival’s IMDB Profile!

Brasov International Film Festival & Market is the most important and renowned nonviolent film festival in the world. The Festival was founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012 to showcase nonviolent, main stream motion pictures and to show that those movies are not only capable of great international success but they are also in high demand by the public.

For four years, the Festival was held in the beautiful resort city of Brasov located in Transylvania, in the heart of Romania.

Starting this year, in 2016, on it’s 5th edition, the Festival is moving ONLINE! All films selected this year will be screened on the Festival’s VIMEO Channel that will be revealed soon.

Festival’s dates are: 1 – 11 September 2016

Submission deadline: July 29, 2016

All submitted films (that adhere to the Festival’s guidelines) will be certified as an “Official Selection” and will receive the Official Selection Certificate.

The selected films will be screened (on the programmed date and time) via Brasov International Film Festival & Market’s VIMEO channel and they will be awarded.

Film Director Bruno Pischiutta, the Artistic Consultant of the Festival, had this to say: “Today, there are thousands of Film Festivals everywhere and many people are not used anymore to view films in cinemas but on their TV and on their computer’s screens. Many see films on gadgets and on their phone. These are the facts.

Considering the above, considering the importance and the meaning of our Festival, the most important and renowned nonviolent Film Festival in the world and considering that today, in the era of the internet, there are other ways to reach a big number of viewers, a number that no cinema can contain, I have decided to modify the formula of our Festival.

The next edition, the fifth edition of the Brasov Film Festival will be available to all the world’s viewers via the internet. Everybody will be able, for a few Euros per ticket price, to follow our Festival everywhere in the world. Brasov International Film Festival & Market is the world vanguard of on-line Film Festivals and it is making history. Our Festival will bring to the viewers’ screens feature films, feature documentaries, short films, short documentaries and related presentations”.
