BUCHAREST: The 7th Bucharest International Experimental Film Festival BIEFF will take place from 28 March to 2 April 2017. This year the programme challenges the audience to defy borders and to experience empathy.
Established as one of the boldest film festivals in Romania, BIEFF has this year five competition programmes including 28 films: The Politics of the Body: The Performative Self, Searching for Transcendence: Spirituality in the Digital Age, You Are another Me: On Exile and Shifting Borderscapes, The Alchemy of the Frame: Deconstructing the Image, and Cutting the Cord: Family Love and Its Discontents.
The selection was curated by filmmaker Adina Pintilie in collaboration with Dan Angelescu. Following the BIEFF’s long-term partnership with Cannes’ Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, the latest film by Alejandro Jodorowsky Endless Poetry / Poesia sin Fin will open the festival. Winners of the most prestigious international film festivals and events in 2016 will also screen at the festival.
The 7th edition of the Bucharest International Experimental Film Festival BIEFF is organised by Manekino Cultural Association in partnership with PRINTOR COM and Film Monitor Association.
