ABOUT BRASOV INT’L FILM FESTIVAL & MARKET:
The Festival, founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012, showcases nonviolent films and demonstrates how those movies are not only capable of great international success, but are also in high demand by the public.
In 2016, the two founders made film and internet history by bringing the Festival on-line exclusively and allowing, for the first time, the world viewers to enjoy all the selected films from the comfort of their homes on its Official On Demand VIMEO Channel.
Each year, all selected films are featured in the annual edition of Daria! magazine that is published in August and it is available online. Some of the previous issues may be read here: Daria!
