In the heart of Transylvania, land of Dracula, is the city of Cluj-Napoca host of the Transylvania International Transfer 16mm Film to Digital Toronto Festival also known as TIFF. The festival is often confused with the Toronto festival because they share the same acronym. But if you just refer to Europe then there is no mistake in the middle.

The festival has reached his 10th anniversary, the first edition of the TIFF was held in the year 2002 in the city of Cluj-Napoca. As the festival grew more popular it traveled trough several cities of Romania, but the main host of the festival remains the city of Cluj-Napoca. This year the participant movies will also play in Sibiu and the Bucharest (the capital of Romania).
