A tradition held in every festival edition, in 2018 TIFF dedicates the screening of the Academy Awards’ Best Foreign Film nominee to the pupils of Nicolae Iorga School of Cluj-Napoca. All the funds raised from the tickets sale will be directed to the project of equipping and fitting out a cinema and media activities room in the school. This is where children with disadvantaged backgrounds will be able to enjoy their own screenings and specialized workshops, which will take place for the entire school year period, with the support of TIFF.
