LIVE SCREENINGS August 16-18 ,2024
"Actors must act, writers must write, film makers must make films...,directors, producers and audiences will come...That's Entertainment."

Bistrita Romania International Film Festival is an independent film festival with LIVE SCREENINGS , providing a stage for artists to present their films.

Our goal is to bring together a diverse and large audience and screen as many films as possible, showcasing to spectators that short films are equally captivating and offer a unique storytelling experience within a brief amount of time.
Therefore, we do not sell tickets, the entry to the festival and film screenings is free.
Join us on this cinematic journey, where an International Jury of experienced professionals adds prestige to the event.

The first edition in 2023 at Teleki Castle drew a substantial audience in an atmosphere that felt like a film set. People enjoyed watching 32 films from around the world.

This year we're expanding with film nights in Bistrita city to showcase more films and reach a broader audience.

If you're a talented artist, filmmaker, editor, producer, writer, or director, we want you to be part of it! We're on the lookout for artists who are making fresh content in a wide range of movie styles.
