Kinofest is an independent self-supported cultural project, since the first edition, in 2007. Well, it wasn't an easy job to fulfil it, and considering the political-economical context, it's not geting easier.
In order to obtain more help, and to reach more people, we created a fund raising campaign on www.kisskissbankbank.com.
If you like short films as much as we do, and if you want to sustain our cultural intercession, we invite you to study our KissKiss project and make us a donation: begining from 5euro and going up! Were offering you our gratitude, rewards, tickets, publicity partnerships, trips - you namet it! A small help from you would mean so much for us.
If you can't make a donation, please promote our campaign on your blog/social network profile - it would be very helpful.

Thank you!
