The Centrul Naţional al Cinematografiei (National Cinematography Centre - CNC) announced the results of its session concerning subsidies for cinematography projects for the period from 1 July to 31 December 2010 (organising of or attending domestic or international film festivals or fairs, support for cultural or cinematography education programmes, publishing of specialised works on cinematography, and other activities; see IRIS 2010-5:1/34 and IRIS 2010-2:1/30).

The CNC granted subsidies for 21 projects and rejected 29 projects. The total amount of the subsidies is RON 1,896,290 (around EUR 451,500).

Thirteen subsidies, amounting to RON 1,537,840 (around EUR 366,150) were granted to associations, foundations and companies organising film festival projects, some of which are already traditional and widely appreciated in Romania and abroad (i.e., DaKino International Film Festival, International Short Films Festival „Alternative”, International Students’ Film Festival “CineMAiubit”, International Cartoons Film Festival “Anim-Est”, “Kinodissea” Film Festival, Youth Film Festival). The jury rejected, among others, a project for subsidising the well-reputed International Independent Film Festival “Anonimul”.

The biggest subsidy amounts to RON 336,000 (around EUR 80,000) for the Fundaţia Europeană pentru Cultură Urbană (European Foundation for Urban Culture), the organiser of the Festivalul de Film de comedie „Comedy Cluj” („Comedy Cluj” Comedy Film Festival).

The Uniunea Cineaştilor din România (Romanian Filmmakers Union - UCIN) was granted RON 46,250 (around EUR 11,000) for organising the annual presentation of the Premiile UCIN (UCIN Prizes).
