Dear Friend welcome to the 13'th edition of TIFF
The TIRANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (TIFF) is the first and only international cinema festival of its kind in Albania. Created in 2003, this extraordinary cultural event takes place under the auspices of the Albanian National Center for Cinematography (QKK).

COMPETITION PROGRAM

This year's competition features four distinct sections:
1. Feature Film Competition
2. Short Film Competition
3. In Albanian Film Competition
All the daily programs of the TIFF festival combine features and short films in all formats and genres: fiction, documentary, animation and experimental.  Open to any filmmaker from around the world, TIFF showcases new cinematic work by established directors with international reputations as well as work by talented students and young artists.
TIFF provides time in its daily schedule for classes and seminars with professionals in the motion picture industry geared for Albanian students of the cinema and emerging filmmakers, special programs & screenings, retrospectives, homage, tributes and international guests.
The aim of TIRANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is, above all, to create a meeting point for filmmakers, artists and cinema enthusiasts from Albania, Europe and the entire world, to come together and share their common passion and knowledge of the motion picture art form.
This 13th edition of TIFF 2015 brings several important changes to its previous years. For the seventh time, TIFF announces a feature film competition along with its prestigious international shorts program. During the nine days of TIFF's program, from October 28th to November 5th, in addition to competition shorts and features screenings, many retrospectives, seminars, master classes, press events and special presentations at theatres all over the Albanian capital will take place.
The intention of TIFF is to bring filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts from all around the world to Tirana, Albania in hopes of fostering future co-operation in this extraordinary scenic area.
By bringing together these distinct voices and their work, the TIRANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL commits itself to introducing audiences to alternative visions of extraordinary diversity.
On the occasion of this 13th edition of TIFF, four juries comprised of leading film writers, directors, producers and critics will evaluate and then select the best features & shorts with awards presented on the closing night ceremony.
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
