Our Film Festival has been formed by teachers, students, film directors, musicians, and writers from the very love and passion for filmmaking.
The festival is held in one of the most beautiful places in Eastern Europe, known as "Bania", place located in the South of Transylvania.
The region is known through the well-known national theatre ''Marin Sorescu'', which has got many awards internationally throughout the years.
It encourages the artistic vision of everyone who is passionate about film, without restrictions or borders. The Festival is desired to be the bond between cultures, nations, and people.
