Print

(presented and organized by TIFF, DIGITALB and NTV).


CONCEPT
For the fifth time now, we here at the TIRANA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL have cultivated the idea of creating a digital tv channel dedicated to the cinema in general and short films in particular. Using the informative and communicative ability of the television medium, TIFF is able in its 11th edition to offer a TV channel to exhibit the films with awards in all genres. It is our belief that this undertaking will bring the public an easy and accessible way to view and appreciate achievements in the short film form.

PREMISE AND ORGANIZATION
TIFF in co-operation with NTV - Nesër Television offers a twentyfour hour a day television channel whose content will be short & feature films, fiction, animation, documentary and experimental categories.

FUNCTION
