Filmul de Piatra* is a festival created by the young for the young. 100% based on Volunteer Power, the festival’s main goal is to offer a platform for young short film directors from Romania and Moldova.

That said, the festival is known for its’ youthfulness and friendliness, unconventional locations, and very long nights of hard partying.

In 2021, the 13th edition of the festival will take place between 27th and 29th of August, in Piatra Neamt, a city in North-East Romania.

The competitive section is open for short films made in the past year by directors from Romania and Moldova. The following awards are given at the festival:
- best short fiction film;
- best short documentary film;
- best short animated film;
Several jury mentions are also offered for different types of achievements in all categories of films.
At least one Audience Award will be granted based on reactions of the audience after each film.

Submitted films must be under 30 minutes in length and be a majority production of one of the countries of Romania or Moldova. Made in 2020 and 2021. Films that already traveled to important international festivals are usually screened off-competition, while the competition is reserved for fresh films at the start of their career. Exceptions are possible!

    Foarte nice experienta! O selectie diversificata, juriu misto, Q&A-uri si discuti valoroase pe baza filmelor, evenimente pe parcursul zilei care sa lege legaturi :). Organizatorii te fac sa te simti bine primit si te ajuta in orice ai nevoie. Recomand calduros sa trimiteti si mai ales sa mergeti acolo daca ati fost selectati. E mai mult decat un festival de film.
