Transilvania Shorts is the tool that every filmmaker needs, in order to showcase and get recognitions for their film. We have created seasonally editions to give continuity to the selection process and a steady feedback to the filmmakers.Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their work is screened every season and evaluated by a team of experts in the industry.

Held each season in the beautiful and medieval city of Targu Mures, Transilvania, the festival brings the very best of world cinema to Romania from over 90 countries around the world. TRANSILVANIA SHORTS is held at various location from Transilvania, such as Targu Mures, Sighisoara, Sibiu, Brasov, Cluj. This year’s Festival Program will showcase a wide variety of International thought-provoking Shorts, Documentaries, Music Videos, Animations, Experimental Films, Student Films, and more.

The festival is dedicated to the creation of opportunities for the artistic interaction and exchange among filmmakers and the film-going community. Festival-goers create their own experience with everything from World Premiers to intimate gatherings and nightly parties. Each season the festival opens with a filmmaker reception allowing the creators of these wonderful films to interact with each other and the festival-going audiences. The festival culminates with the Closing Awards Ceremony honoring the important work of some of today’s brightest and most creative artists.
