The “Artis Foundation” is the organiser of the “Romania International Film Festival“. Founded in 2005, it is the only international film festival that, from the very beginning, looked towards the Black Sea region’s film industry (Russia, Moldavian Republic, Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece and Romania). Initially founded for the film productions mentioned above, due to it’s growth in 2009, another competiv section was added – Woman in cinema. In the same year we chose the name Ro-IFF, a name that best represents us.
Formerly dedicated only to Black Sea Region productions, it took place in Constanta (Black Sea Romanian Coast). Since 2006 each edition received the High Patronage of the President of Romania.
