"This year, the organization of the 12th edition of the International Film 4 Fun Festival online gave us some 'headaches'. In a very short time, we were faced with logistical and organizational challenges we haven't met before. Now, the motto of the festival - 'In a world full of conflict, we chose to amuse ourselves!' - is more right than ever," said Laura Georgescu Baron, director/founder of Film 4 Fun.
The competition Film 4 Fun will be judged by Croatian director, screenwriter and producer Pavo Marinkovic, Romanian film critic, historian and professor Dana Duma and British editor, producer and director Steve Teers. They will award the prizes for best short length film, best director and best script.
The audience may vote their preferred film for the Audience's Prize.
All throughout the festival period, July 30 - August 2, on the website Film4Fun.ro visitors can also view a masterclass held by Steve Teers and the workshop "Special effects in film makeup" by Georgiana Teers.
