Out of all these applications only 100 films can be chosen each year for the competition program. With these three new services, Tirana IFF offers the opportunity to many films to be shown in alternative ways (TV, online, market, special programs) in a wider audience and experts.
The applicants must apply clearly for each one of these new services. Fill the appropriate field in the entry form.
