TIFF 2015 announces films in competition

TIFF 2015 announces films in competition
Rams by Grímur Hákonarson

Twelve first or second features are in with a chance of winning the Transilvania Trophy, the top award at the Transilvania International Film Festival (29 May-7 June, Cluj-Napoca). No Romanian films are in the official competition, but Europe is well represented, with features from Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, the UK and Spain.

“This year, I favoured intimate films and those productions that use, in an intelligent and surprising manner, the conventions of genre cinema. On the one hand, emotion, and on the other, tension. I was interested in the manner in which filmmakers who have made their first or second features can make the most – through precise editing, great acting and directorial talent – of the impact of these stories, which start from a limited set-up, budget or number of characters,” said TIFF artistic director Mihai Chirilov in a press release.
