Closing of the 2014 Festival and Workshops – Videos

Brasov, Romania — September 18, 2014 – For immediate release
The International Film Workshops 2014, organized by Daria Trifu and taught by film director Bruno Pischiutta in English language, ended on September 14 with the graduation ceremony of the 13 Romanian and international students who have attended the third edition of the program in Brasov, Romania. At the ceremony the students received their Certificates of Attendance. This was also the last edition of the Workshops, due to the fact that the courses have been filmed and will be distributed worldwide on DVD, which could be produced in several languages and give, in this way, access to the Workshops to many young talents worldwide without coming all the way to Brasov. The Workshops offer the necessary theoretical knowledge to start a film career, at international level, as film actors, film writers, film directors and film producers, and were completely free for the students.
