A new edition of the “Lună Plină” ( Full Moon ) horror film festival will take place this weekend in Biertan, Sibiu county. Focusing on horror and fantasy movies, the event reaches its third edition this year, and will run between July 23 and July 27.

The Romanian Film Association and the Transylvanian International Film Festival (TIFF) have organized the event jointly. There will be two indoor and two outdoor venues, including screenings in the central square overlooked by the fortified medieval church.

Besides traditional local boarding houses, the festival goers can stay at camping facilities laid on for the event. The event will also host an arts and crafts fair offering traditional dishes and goodies, handmade products and concerts in the evenings.

Founded in 1283 AD, Biertan (in picture) was one of the first Saxon settlements in Transylvania. It is around 25 km away from Sighisoara and Medias.
