The first edition of “FULL MOON”, the only film festival in Romania focused exclusively on horror and fantasy pictures, will take place between the 16th and 19th of August 2012, in Biertan.
Presented by the same team behind Transilvania International Film Festival and aiming to scare your socks off in the name of high quality entertainment, “FULL MOON” intends to bring to its audience the best offerings in terms of horror and fantasy, both classic and modern, movies that either have become landmarks of the genre in particular, and of cinema in general, or are about to.
The city of Biertan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biertan) is one of the first German settlements in Transylvania, situated in a hilly area not very far from the medieval fortress of Sighisoara. An ideal location for outdoor screenings, Biertan boasts a central square overlooked by the grandiose fortified church of Biertan, an architectural masterpiece protected by UNESCO (http://www.beel-online.com/Biertan.html).
The screenings will take place in two open air locations and one indoor venue. In addition, we will provide film fans with a modern camping built from scratch and supplied with all the facilities and a series of summer activities and concerts to „help” them through the day, in anticipation of the after-dark screenings. The admission fee will be less than 1 € per title.
The first edition of FULL MOON will be a showcase (about 25 feature films, as well as many short films and documentaries) of the latest trends, both provocative and bold in terms of horror and fantasy. An entirely independently financed endeavor, made with a lot of love and passion, „FULL MOON Horror & Fantastic Film Festival” intends to become a member of the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (EFFFF), thus turning Romania into an important stopover of such events. The European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation (EFFFF) is supported by the MEDIA programme of the EU and focuses on promoting the originality and creativity of the European fantasy and horror cinema.
