About Bucharest International Film Festival - BIFF - B-EST

Dima Madalina

B-EST IFF 2009 takes place at Cinema Studio, between 23rd and 30th March.
Price for one ticket 8 RON, 4 films pass 24 RON.
All students, regardless of university, have free access, based on their student id.

Buchar-EST International Film Festival (B-EST IFF) is the first major feature film competition organized in Bucharest, starting with 2005.

The aim of the festival has been to become a forum that encourages new cinema trends. We wish to discover new talents, to promote young filmmakers that have achieved recognition both at a national level, as well as in prestigious international competitions. We wish to bring a selection of best quality films to the cinema audience of Bucharest, and we invite you to take part in this event.

B-EST is a festival dedicated to art cinema, but also to those that want to express something new and different through film. Although the focus is represented by independent creations, low and medium-budget productions, B-EST has always managed to include important international awarded films in its selections.
