An independent cultural initiative, the TECHIRGHIOL ART FESTIVAL aims to create a context for expressing the effervescence of creation on the Romanian coast.
The TECHIRGHIOL ART FESTIVAL will first of all have a film section and a theater section, with events dedicated to audiences of all ages: children's shows, independently produced short film competition, street performances, screening of Romanian feature films, meetings with story characters, film workshops, etc.

For those arriving here for the first time, the organizers have prepared guided tours inspired by the history of the place including both cultural sites and architectural or entertainment buildings, thus helping them to penetrate the spirit of the place.

For the TECHIRGHIOL ART FEST, the year 2024 means the continuation of a tradition that we want to be perennial, a tradition that once existed in these lands, maybe in a different form, but whose testimony we find inscribed in the aesthetics of buildings, in sculptures which populates the central park, in the buildings of already existing shows and simply in the poetry of the place that has attracted lovers of beauty of all times.

A total of 1000 € for the prizes:
1. Winner 500 €
2. Finalist 300 €
3. Nominee 200 €

A certificate for the winner and the other two places.

**each cash prize will be subject to the payment of bank transfer fees depending on the country in which the winner is located; all prizes will be sent from Romania**

***the number of prizes awarded may be increased, depending on the pending partnerships and sponsorships

Each short film will be reviewed by our judges after the film is scored by our screening team.
