Ceau, Cinema! Pocket Film Festival

Ceau, Cinema! Festival de Buzunar came from the need to befriend the people of Timișoara with the European cinema, with their cinema, which has been missing lately from the local scenery.

Our mission: to promote European and Romanian films and to prove that they are as catchy and attractive as Hollywood cinema, but much closer to our hearts. And, foremost, that watermelons taste better than popcorn.

The 2nd edition of the Festival Ceau, Cinema! will take place during July 22nd – 26th in Timișoara and Gottlob and it will bring to the public European films, both recent box-office films and independent ones, documentaries and short animations, trying to meet the most various tastes.

Thie 2nd edition of the Festival Ceau, Cinema! includes an international competition section dedicated to feature films (fiction, non-fiction or animation). The call is open for filmmakers from countries with minorities in the Banat region: Armenia, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Israel, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, Hungary, and also productions which bring into the spotlight different ethnic groups such as Aromanians, Rroma, Tatars.

The Ceau Cinema! Festival Award is endowed with 1,000 euro. The prize will be awarded to the film director. There will also be an Audience Award, in value of 500 euro.

Further details on the competition, the entry form and FAQ are available on www.ceaucinema.ro or through e-mail at: festival@ceaucinema.ro.
