Save Tirana International FIlm Festival sign now

The Tirana International Film Festival, created in 2002, is based in a simple trinity, the filmmakers, the public and the festival financial supporters.

In these five years, TIFF managed to represent the largest ever network generated from Albania that was able to gather FILMMAKERS from over 70 countries all around the World and to facilitate the circulation of more than 4000 films, the exchange of their respective techniques, point of views, themes and diversity of cultural values.

The Tirana International Film Festival, relying on the work, the passion and expertise of its staff and collaborators acted in these 5 years to promote the Albanian cinema in the World, via numerous actions (film retrospectives and not only) that respond to the real need of the industry and of the international audiences. But what does really make the difference, speaking on terms of human relations, are the citizens of the cities where film festivals are held.

From their reaction, from the reaction of the public highly depends the success of a film festival. The PUBLIC of Tirana, the public of Albania in these years of existence of TIFF showed that the International Film Festival is a more than needed event in a culturally fast growing capital. The TIFF counts about 3000 Albanian spectators per year.

While the two pillars, the filmmakers and the public, the PEOPLE OF FESTIVAL become stronger and stronger, this year, in the fifth anniversary of TIFF, the sudden and inexplicable disengagement of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, Youth and Sports, which was the main financial supporter of the Festival, put TIFF in a very difficult situation.

There is no official reply to our requests, until now, for financing TIFF project in its 2007 edition.
TIFF decided to respond jointly to this situation by publicly reacting through this petition.

We do really feed the hope that Tirana Film Festival has more and more followers that do really want TIFF existence, for the best of the culture of Albania and for our integration through culture.
