Amid most festival closures, organisers of TIFF (Transilvania International Film Festival), have announced new dates for 2020’s edition of the annual event.
The festival will now be held from July 31 until August 9 and will feature many screenings in Piata Unirii, as well as a number of other associated events, which will be adapted based on the guidance surrounding the COVID-19 epidemic.
The organisers will continue to announce more information on their social networks, and official website: https://tiff.ro/
Last year’s event, saw international movie star, Nicholas Cage, receive the Transilvania Trophy for Contribution to World Cinema award, and he also delivered a masterclass at the historic Bánffy Castle, located in Bonţida, which is a village just outside of Cluj, familiar to many for hosting Electric Castle, which this year, has been postponed until 2021.
Artistic director, Mihai Chirilov, explained, “As always, we promise an eclectic mix of new titles and retrospectives, the traditional themed section, the Full Moon films, national focus sections and exceptional documentaries, special programs and events, and a serious and welcome dose of fun. Even if #staysafe is the keyword, the films that take risks continue to have a privileged place in the festival.”
Volunteers for this year’s event can apply until July 1st, 2020 here: https://tiff.ro/en/volunteer-submissions-form
