The ShortsUp Picnic, an event dedicated to screenings of short films, takes place July 29th and July 30th at the Botanical Garden in Bucharest.

The films will be screened between 21:30 and 23:30 and are themed on the need for freedom and closeness to nature. The films are feature ones, comedies and animations.

In addition to the scheduled shorts, a series of video-testimonials about the people and stories of the Cotroceni neighborhood of Bucharest will be shown.

The trio JazzyBIT, made up of Teodor Pop, Mihai Moldoveanu and Szabó Csongor-Zsolt will deliver a live concert on Friday evening, while the Saturday evening screenings will be preceded by a video-mapping session meant to explore one of the capital’s most beautiful green places.

Tickets, priced RON 25 per evening, or passes, priced RON 30, can be purchased at
