CIFF- Constanta International Film Festival

Like Sundance and Slamdance, Constanta International Film Festival (CIFF) is founded and created by active film professionals. 

Most of the CIFF BOARD members have a vast array of relevant filmmaking experience, such as Selection Director, Viorel Sergovici, with over 80 professional productions under his belt, making him one of the most prolific working Directors of Photography. We are also proud to have as a Directors Board member, Geo Dobre, who has acted in over 40 films, including the 2007 Cannes Film Festival Palme D’or award winner «4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.» 

Constanta International Film Festival

Through its thematic group of selected films and programs, CIFF seeks to discover, support, and inspire independent films and film professional artists from all over the world. The festival also will serve to introduce Romanian and international audiences to these filmmakers’ visions and works.

CIFF is ideally designed to happen in full summer season, during the 3rd weekend of August, when tourists from all over the world flock to the Black Sea Coast.
