The Festival was initiated by the ANONIMUL Foundation, as it aimed to create a different kind of film festival, one for independent films and young directors.
ANONIMUL International Independent Film Festival runs annually in August in Sfântu Gheorghe, the Danube Delta – a magical place where the Danube meets the Black Sea, a newly formed land that follows ancient customs.
Sfântu Gheorghe is an isolated location: far from one’s common environment, it is accessible only by air or by water, and it plays host to some 5000 people who visit it specifically for ANONIMUL each and every year in August.
It is a small village, with trails covered in sand, that keeps very many ancient customs, a magical place of unaltered beauty, a newly formed land for an event dedicated to the young, the free spirited, to encounters, debates and, ultimately, to dialogue.
“Film Village” is comprised of the Green Village Resort and the Green Dolphin Camping, and features all the amenities essential to hosting a film festival. Cinephiles can stay in guesthouses, tents or cabins, seeing films in the cinema during the day, and in the open air, on an enormous screen in the camping area throughout the night. The resort has an ECO-friendly design, and is thus perfectly coherent with the environment.
The Festival has two competitive sections:
1. Feature Film Competition
2. Short Film Competition
There is no submission fee.
The audience will award the prizes by vote only.
Non-competitive programs:
. International Panorama- feature films awarded in Film Festivals that year, homages, retrospectives.
. The Actors behind Camera section.
. The Romanian OFF section featuring screenings of Romanian recent feature and short films.
. Special screenings on ecology & global issues & special programs.
. Question and answer sessions with representatives of films screened within the Festival, public debates with film crews, film critics & guests.
