BucharEST Film Fest

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, the focus being on independent creations, low and medium-budget productions, but at the same time highlighting important international awarded films. Call For entries deadlined the 28th February.

About BucharEST Film Fest

Dana Dimitriu

Film critic, TV program producer and entertainer, actress in Romanian films, Dana Dimitriu is a film festival director also - that of B-EST IFF since 2005, a festival promoting not only art, but also peace and tolerance. An admirer of Federico Fellinis, Dana also appreciates the work of actress Anita Edberg.

 It is then our desire that B-EST IFF gain international recognition,  the very way Sarajevo created an unanimously acknowledged festival, the very way Karlovy-Vary imposed itself among Eastern-European important festivals.

We thank our friends supporting this initiative.
