ClujShorts 2016: April 4 to 10, Cinema Victoria, Cluj-Napoca

First of all we would like to thank once again all those who have submitted their films to ClujShorts. You are the ones who make the selection more difficult from year to year. Watching the entered productions was truly an honor: We learned many things and discovered an enormous amount of things by watching each movie individually; moments full of heated discussion and revelation in the true sense of the word are those reflected in the official selection which we are extremely happy to share with you here.
We started with 677 entered productions. After more than 175 hours of viewing and good days of debate, the following conclusion was reached: 181 shorts. 181 films or 36.92 hours full of suspense, innovation, and maximum diversity will be screened in the framework of the fourth edition of ClujShorts at Victoria Cinema.

But what exactly does this selection mean?

Comedy with a fantastic sense of humor, full of subtlety and the absurd.

Drama with characters and incredible stories with complex builts.

Visual animations that covers the visual palette from magic to the grotesque.

Documentaries that not only documents the passive but is committed to making critical analysis and provokes the viewer to take a position.

Experimentals that create a truly synesthetic cinematic experience.

In short? Directors who probably have not heard, but you definitely hear more of.

But the work was not done here. Of the 181 selected films, only a third will be part of the official competition. Here recommence discussions and additional views. Therefore, we review in two weeks with new information.

Congratulations to those selected and thank not only those selected for ClujShorts 2016, but also because it guarantees a truly remarkable edition. We hope to see all at ClujShorts!
