Artviva’s aim is to enable an international framework for development, production and promotion of film projects, fiction and documentary, shorts and features, as well as film festivals, workshops, and visual culture, setting up and building a professional network in the East European region, and to encourage audiovisual collaborations between both EU and non-EU member states.
Artviva’s young production portfolio includes several shorts and commercials.
Since its founding in September 2012, Artviva is a constant cultural partner of the Russian Embassy and the Russian Center for Culture and Science (opened in 2015) in organizing the Russian Film Days Festivals in partnership with Mosfilm (2012) and Lenfilm (2013), celebrating well-known film makers: Tarkovsky’s Celebration, German Family Portrait, and launching DVD collections with Mosfilm Golden Films.
Besides these initiatives, Artviva is a supportive partner for well-established festivals looking to broaden their portfolio of films or jury members (DaKino IFF, Cinepolitica IFF) or set a new mark in the Romanian cultural environment (Kazakh Film Festival, in partnership with the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan and Kazakh Films).
