DocTank@AFF - industry accreditations open

Astra Film Festival, one of the most relevant documentary filmmaking events in Europe, offers every year in Sibiu (Romania) a vital and exciting meeting place of world cinema.

For 26 years now, non-fiction film lovers, general audiences, and professionals from all over the world have attended the AFF editions each October to live an enlightening experience, by exploring and understanding the human condition through the edifying cinema of reality.

The aim of the program is to encourage the development and growth of Romanian and European documentary industries and of its current and future filmmakers.
