    BUCHAREST: A total of 28 titles from 14 countries are competing in the International Competition of the 7 edition of the Bucharest International Dance Film Festival (1-5 September 2021), a platform for exquisite films that use movement as their main language or the body as their main subject.

    Four titles were selected for the Romanian Competition. Together, the 34 short films have been chosen from among over 400 titles submitted. A jury will decide two prizes worth 1,500 EUR for Best International Film and Best Romanian Film.

    Bucharest International Dance Film Festival is organised by the Tangaj Collective Association, and it is co-financed by the Bucharest City Hall through ARCUB within the Bucharest – Open City 2021 programme, as well as by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund (AFCN). The festival is supported by Conceptual Lab by Theo Nissim.

    In 2020 BIDFF has been nominated at the AFCN Awards for Promoting Romanian Culture around the World.
