         * Following the reactions of the public and the notifications received, based on Art. 9 of the “Terms and Conditions”, we decided to modify the judging method, trying to weigh the decision of the public by the vote of a specialized jury.

         We want to keep the importance of the public decision, therefore, the share of the 2 types of voting will be equal: the public vote 50% and the jury vote 50%

         The members of the jury of the interpretation contest will be: MIHNEA CHELARIU, ZEFIR BREZEANU and CODRIN LAZAR.

         The public vote will continue until February 3, 2021!

         The winning song will be the basis for the creation of the soundtrack that will be used to make the animated film of the ABIFF Festival.

          Its action will take place in Romania and will describe the relationship between a boy / girl member of the majority (Romanian) and a girl / boy belonging to an ethnic minority (cohabitant / emigrant / refugee depending on the public vote – all characters will be generated by the Contests drawing within the ABIFF Project). The 2 main characters will go through different adventures trying to train the same dog, each in their mother tongue.

          Within the ABIFF Project, a total of 4 drawing contests, 2 music contests and the online game will be organized, which will lead to the completion of the script, drawing an animated short film.

Participations rules:
