In the meantime, Muuuvi Fest is a cinema-substitute for the 60,000 inhabitants of Gheorgheni (the town where it takes place). Since the local cinema, Miorita, closed its doors, the inhabitants have lost touch with movies. During the first four editions of the festival, over 1,000 short films from all over the world have been showcased, and well-known filmmakers, from the United States to the Congo, have participated.
Aside from movie screenings, there will be “parties ‘til dawn,” DJs and different bands and visual artists from London and Tokyo. Muuuvi Fest invites by July 1 short movies competing for the BloodyCow award. These will be judged by an international jury of five members with the trophies made this year by young artist Orosz Annabella. Other prizes are also up for grabs.
