Initiated in 2012, the Full Moon – Horror & Fantasy Film Festival is the first exclusively horror and fantasy film-oriented event in Romania. It takes place annually in the Biertan village in Sibiu County, offering the audience the best horror and fantasy film productions, and also recent releases.

Presented by the same team behind Transilvania International Film Festival and aiming to scare your socks off in the name of high quality entertainment, Full Moon brings to its audience the best offerings in terms of horror and fantasy, both classic and modern, movies that either have become landmarks of the genre in particular, and of cinema in general, or are about to.

This year, we will celebrate the Festival's eighth edition with short films and features from all around the world.

We are launching the call for entries for the 9th edition of Full Moon – Horror & Fantasy Film Festival, the first genre film-oriented event in Romania. The deadline for submissions is May 15th, both for short and for feature films.
