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 2019, the festival will take place in a camp, in the mountains! We'll call it "Camp Edition". Save the dates: 25-28 July, 2019!

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;
- best short experimental film;
- best music video.
Several jury mentions are also offered for different types of achievements in all categories of films.

Submitted films must be under 30 minutes in length and be a majority production of one of the countries of Romania or Moldova. 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!

    Nice location (on top of a mountain), nice people atending. However, the main budget (and time) was dedicated to the music concerts, while films and film makers were kind of ignored by the organisers. It seems that the focus is elsewhere, not on films. Projections started so late that 70% of the public didn't attend the screenings. Accommodation was rudimentary, though money were spent on other unrelated priorities.

    The crew of the festival gave me the impression of a big family offering their hospitality to the guests, screening films from young directors in this lovely little town next to the mountains.

    Un festival ce are loc intr-un oras foarte frumos si placut. Oamenii din spatele festivalului sunt dedicati ca totul sa iasa bine, iar daca totusi sunt dificultati atmosfera ramane una placuta. Recomand sa vizitati si sa va inscrieti la Filmul de Piatra!
