The “FILMUL de PIATRA” Film Festival

The “Filmul de Piatra” is a short film festival (all the genres) with a national competition, international programs, famous guests and many special events, for cinema men and public. The competition is opened both to the films produced by production companies, school films and also the one of amateurs or produced at workshops. The Festival shall award the prize of the best film to each category (fiction, documentary, animation/experimental), but also for the best directing, the best story, the best image, the best montage, the best sound track and the best young actor/actress (the awards shall be in money, to which products offered by the partners and sponsors shall be added). The international programs shall contain films that have won awards at the most important festivals in the world, selections of the partner festivals in Romania and also special programs. The host of the festival is the “Teatrul Tineretului”(the Youth Theatre), and the special events (concerts, parties) and also projections simultaneous to the ones of theatre, shall take place in Pizza & Grill 66. A competitive program, a best of the Romanian short films, winners of many awards, 8 international programs and even a horror movies night, bands in live concerts, DJ parties and visual mix, simultaneous projections in the secondary location, workshops and non conventional team-building… only a few of our ideas for the 5  days(and nights!) of festival. The “Filmul de Piatra” is being organised by Filmlab and the Neamt County Council. The main partners are: The National Centre of Cinematography, the Youth Theatre, Pizza & Grill 66, the Association for Promotion of the Romanian Film and the Embassy of France.
