TIRANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is the first international film festival and the only of its kind in Albania. This extraordinary cultural event created in 2003 is one of the most important cinematic event in Balkans.

TIFF aims to create in Albania, as well as in the region, a cultural center of worldwide alternative and independent cinema. Albania is a solar, enthusiastic and friendly country and besides the “strong competition” TIFF aims at the same time to be a meeting point of cultures, where people of Tirana, the guests and all those who love films will have a cinema-language-communication week.

TIFF aims to create a friendly space for film artists and cinema enthusiasts from Albania, Europe and the entire world to come together and share their linked passion and knowledge of the motion picture art form. The intention of TIFF is to bring filmmakers, producers and distributors from all around the world to Tirana, in hopes of fostering future co-operation in this interesting scenic area. By bringing together these distinct voices and their work, TIFF commits itself to introducing audiences to alternative visions of extraordinary diversity. "Think Different, Watch Alike" is the slogan and motto of TIFF.

TIFF aims at demonstrating strong efficiency in audience development (especially toward young audience) by implementing activities before, during and after the event, including year-long activities and travelling to other cities with various smaller partner and smaller festivals in the country. Partnering with small organizations and youth centers around the country in order to use the existing facilities in each city will not only give to TIFF a large national impact, but will enhance on the other side the increase of values of small events in each respective city in which TIFF will be present.

Vermenara's challenge: Trophy + 100 euros. Award dedicated to the best horror film of the edition that will be voted during the drive-in marathon on the night of the first of November.

The award is inspired by a Campania tradition, according to which the Vermenara was an evil able to install itself in the body of man (especially children) following a strong fear. A debilitating evil that could only be saved thanks to magical rituals put in place by the so-called Incarmatrice, an esoteric figure with powers that were handed down with appropriate rites.

The 8th Kinodot Experimental Film Festival
Kinodot Competition
Kinodot competition includes only one category: Experimental films. There is no genre, topic or length restrictions.

Award
Kinodot Jury Prize for the best experimental film.
The winner of Kinodot competition is decided by professional international jury.

Screening Fees
Starting from 2020 we have canceled the cash prize. Instead all films selected for Kinodot competition are now offered the screening fee of $40. For us it's a way to express our support and appreciation to the filmmakers, whose work we admire.

Submission and Other Terms
The festival will take place in St. Petersburg in the second half of May 2020 (the exact dates will be announced in January). Experimental films of any length, finished not earlier than 15.01.2018 can be submitted.

The deadline for applying to Kinodot competition is February 28. The entry fee is $10. Kinodot is an independent festival (so far, knock on wood) and the submission fees are our only source of funding.

By submitting the film to Kinodot Competition the copyright owners agree that, if selected, the film will be screened up to 4 times during the festival and up to 2 more times in the next two years during non-commercial promotional Kinodot screenings.

You can submit your film to Kinodot at Festhome.

The History
Kinodot was launched in 2012 as online minimalist short film festival at kinodot.com. In time the project has developed into independent international experimental film festival with live screenings in movie theaters and unconventional venues in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Originally films submitted to Kinodot had to match at least one of the four selection criteria*:
No Money - films made without a budget; 
No Mumbling - films without dialogue or narration; 
No Music - films without a music score; 
No Montage - films made without editing, i.e. filmed in one shot.
*It’s no longer a requirement, rather a tribute to tradition. Yet in general we still give preference to minimalist films.

Kinodot was created to support and distribute new experimental films, and to inspire filmmakers to experiment in their own way. We promote freedom of ideas, formalism, simplicity and self-restriction as oppose to the secondary film production and self-censorship of high budget festivals. We believe that a great film can be created with very basic means, without special education or expensive equipment. We also believe that creating and following a strict set of formal rules can have a liberating effect on every artist.
