The Transylvania International Film Festival, or TIFF, which takes place every year in the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca in the Carpathians, was founded in 2001, when the first edition was won by a local film, Occident, from rookie director Cristian Mungiu. His second feature, 2007’s 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, went on to win what’s arguably the most prestigious award in filmdom: the Palme d’Or in Cannes.

TIFF and Romanian cinema have grown together, with TIFF becoming the most important film event in Romania and the international rendez-vous for and about Romanian cinema, which since that auspicious start in 2001 has grown into a full-blown movement of internationally recognized titles.
