Astra Film Festival

ASTRA FILM FESTIVAL is a major event in the European film community and Romania’s leading documentary festival. The festival provides a unique focus on Central and Eastern European non-fiction cinema, with a competitive section dedicated to documentaries originating in countries from the area, as well as a rich list of representatives of cinema organisations and individual talents participating in the industry programmes. AFF, which came into being 27 years ago, prides itself with having established a consequential framework for the development of documentary cinema in Central&Eastern Europe and having reinforced a platform for emerging filmmakers in Romania and in the entire region by providing networking oportunities as well as national and international visibility for their work.
