The Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF) is organized by the Transilvania Film Festival Association (AFFT) in partnership with Romanian Film Promotion (APFR), and takes place in Cluj-Napoca at the end of May. Founded in 2002, TIFF managed to quickly become the most important event dedicated to film in Romania and one of the most spectacular annual cultural events in the area. TIFF is a member of CENTEAST - Alliance of Film Festivals in Central and Eastern Europe and is supported by the European Commission through the Creative Europe / MEDIA programme.
