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.

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.
