November 2, 2018 – November 9, 2018 all-day

Tirana International Film Festival, which is implemented by the Tirana Film Institute, is the biggest and the oldest Film Festival in Albania, placed in the capital city Tirana. The Festival was created in 2003 (it was the first film festival after 1 decade of gap from the official state film festival organized during the communism regime until 1990). The Festival is internationally recognized and screens every year more than 200 movies of all genres (feature, short, fiction, documentaries, animation, video art, experimental, student films from all over the world) devised in various sections that compete and with eight international juries, including FIPRESCI, that award the films in competitions.

The 16th edition of TIFF – TIRANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL will be held in November 2 – 9, 2018.

TIFF shows for the public only national premieres, and, as it has happened during different editions, it has shown Balkanic premieres, European or World premieres.

The main goal of TIFF is to turn into a crucial point into the map of the cinema venues in the Balkans having in consideration that is the only film festival in Balkans an official Academy Awards® qualifying festival for the Short Film Awards.

We want to promote our city by organizing film events in the open air, photography workshops, live concerts in the most visited sites of Tirana.

The Festival yearly getting thousands of submissions from submitting online in our website and other online platforms as: FilmFreeway, WithoutaBox, Reelport, Festhome, Click4Festivals, FilmFestivalLife from across Europe (countries participating in the Media programme) more than 30 european countries and from around 120 countries around the world which applies for being selected.

TIFF is the only international festival in Albania and one of the few in the region to apply Entry Fee, and the outstanding number of first time applications during the last year in our website and online platforms was encouraging – as well as an indicator of great interest from cinematographers all over the world to become part of the official selection of TIFF.
