Questions and Answers, in short Q&As, is the acronym used by the film festivals to name the discussions held after the screening between the public and the team behind the film. We bring to you for watching online an important number of Romanian short films, and after the „screening” we invite you to a Q&A session involving questions that had been asked by our Cinepub team or already addressed by our viewers on our Facebook page and the filmmakers’ answers. The Q&As represent a way to find out more about the people behind the films: directors, scriptwriters, directors of photography, producers or actors.
