Our Activity


This extraordinary event for Albania takes place under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sports and Tirana City-Hall.
The competition program combines short films of all formats and categories, alternated between them, in order to make it more eclectic and exciting.
Tirana International Film Festival is open to well-known artists as well as students, representatives of all schools, contemporary, independent and alternative cinema from throughout the world.
Part of the Festival is also a special program which includes all forms of film production - feature, documentaries and animated films more than 30' length. A particular interest is shown in retrospectives of different authors or countries.
TIFF reserves an important space to the seminars and workshops, which prove necessary for the Albanian filmmakers and young artists.

The free of charge newspaper of TIFF, published both in Albanian and English, will enable a daily briefing with the latest news over the Festival through interviews, photos and programs, as well as will offer hints on the artistic life of the capital of Albania.
A press conference is organized every morning in the premises of one of Tirana's most prestigious hotels where the guests will be accommodated.
The program is completed with an important Talk Show at Night, broadcast by the Public Television, where the journalists, art critics, participants and guests are invited to debate about the Festival.

An international jury will evaluate over 100 shorts, latest international and Albanian productions, that in the last night will announce the winners’ awards and prizes in a gala ceremony broadcast live in TV.
Albania is a solar, enthusiastic and friendly country and besides the “strong competition” TIFF aims at the same time to be a meeting point of cultures, where people of Tirana, the guests and all those who love the short film will have a cinema-language-communication week.
TIFF aims to create in Albania, as well as in the Balkans, a cultural center of worldwide alternative and independent cinema.
