Kinofest

International digital film festival.

About

Kinofest is an independent project that has the explicit goal of promoting young film-makers, artists and their work – film, music and visual art - wise; and also, to cultivate the interest in and promote the arts and media culture among the general public throught independent film, video and new media making. We manage to bring every year a premium film selection that is the best in Romania. The festival includes various events and projects: the film competition, presentations and screenings of invited artists/films/festivals, music concerts, live performances, a virtual art gallery where we present interesting "non-moving" digital art: graphic-design, photography, illustration. We would like to offer larger perspectives to our public, to gather all digital trends and new techiniques, to have films and music, graphic and video art. Our latest project is an educational programme developed in high schools, in order to popularize the digital film technics among the young.
