Filmmakers from 13 countries, 3 continents (Europe, Asia and Africa) have inscribed short films for the 3rd edition of Arkadia ShortFest International Film Festival. The final selection for the short films will be disclosed at the end of July and then published on the official site.

The 2016 edition will let the culture lovers enjoy 3 days of film projections, workshops, art exhibits and debates. For this year, Arkadia ShortFest proposes two festival sections, both having an international character –a competitional section (fiction student short film) and a non-competitional section (professional fiction short film, documentary or animation).

At this edition of Arkadia ShortFest, like in the past, the audience will be given the opportunity to watch selections from the best short films that had been projected at important international festivals. For this year the 3 partner festivals are KINOdiseeaÉCU – The European Independent Film Festival and  Biarritz Latin America. We will soon announce more details as for what selection has been proposed by each partner-festival.

ExpoShort Fest will to offer for the unconventional art audience the project entitled Art Factory. For a period of 3 days, this Prahova village is going to become the host of a vast exhibit, having roots in Art Factory curatorial project, an idea put into practice last year by Asociația Fără Nume. Art Factory’s main purpose is a revitalization of abandoned places followed by their reintegration into community.

The 3rd edition will take place during 2-4 September in the already known unconventional space of Camexip Factory (Băicoi, Prahova).
