DEAR FRIENDS, WELCOME TO THE 16th EDITION OF TIFF 2018!

Tirana Film Institute carries out its activities in organizing artistic, cultural and cinematographic film weeks, national and international festivals. TFI is also engaged at all times with film and audiovisual production, design of publicity campaigns, various marketing activities, promotion and film distribution through various shows, screenings and publications. TFI has started a new successful experience as film distributor getting also support from Media-CE.


The rich experience that the staff of TFI disposes allows successfully to organize Tirana International Film Festival in its 16th edition that will be held on November 2-9 2018.

 

Being an international film festival we accept all length films submitting online in our website and other online platforms as: FilmFreeway, WithoutaBox, Reelport, Festhome, Click4Festivals, FilmFestivalLife from all European Countries and around the world, made by prominent or young directors that treat a variety of themes that incite debates for different target audiences. Based submissions till now, TIFF 2018 will present in Special Program hundred of films that deal with the present plights of the society such as emigration and border crossing, war and religion, social exclusion, but also the beautiful idyllic life and love. In the same time, the festival serves as a juxtaposition factor between prominent European artists and Albanian artists.

 

TIFF has built a new competition program in seven main sections annually which will continue to be the same on the 16th edition: Feature (all movie genres), Documentary (all lengths), Fiction/Live Action, Animation, Video Art & Experimental, Student and In Albanian films.

 

We are thrilled and honored to be approved as an official Academy Awards® qualifying festival, it’s truly a tremendous opportunity for our filmmakers and future Best Short Film Award winners.

 

TIFF provides time in its daily schedule for masterclasses and seminars with professionals in the motion picture industry geared for Albanian students of the cinema and emerging filmmakers, special programs & screenings, retrospectives, homage, tributes and international guests.

 

TIFForum is the main and most important workshop of TIFF and the biggest in Albania, a regional approach for the Script Development & Pitching Competition in collaboration with Torino Film Lab.

 

In addition to several theaters and venues, TIFF organizes special screenings, masterclasses and seminars in partner universities such as: University of Arts, MARUBI Film Academy and Mediteranean University of Albania.

 

Eight international juries comprised of leading film writers, directors, producers and critics will evaluate and then select the best films with 23 awards presented on the closing night ceremony.

 

Recipients of the Tirana International Film Festival Best Short Film will be eligible for consideration in the Animated Short Film/ Live Action Short Film category of the Academy Awards® without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy Rules.

 

FIPRESCI The International Federation of Film Critics will send its critics for the FIPRESCI Jury and give the FIPRESCI Prize.

 

TIFF offers the opportunity to many filmmakers to shown their films in alternative ways (TIFF.TV competition, TIFF on Tour, Online Library and Market corner) in a wider audience and experts.

 

"Think Different, Watch Alike" is the slogan and motto of TIFF.
