Astra Film Festival este un proiect de importanta strategica nationala, iar de-a lungul timpului prin prezenta celor mai de seama regizori, producatori, jurnalisti, organizatori de festivaluri sau reprezentanti ai institutiilor de cultura din tara si strainatate, orasul Sibiu a devenit un punct de intalnire intre cultura si oameni de pretutindeni.

De asemenea, editia din 2015 se afla sub egida EFFE - Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe, o distinctie acordata celor mai remarcabile festivaluri europene de catre un juriu international format din experti in domeniu.

Faptul ca editia din 2015 se desfasoara sub inaltul Patronaj al Presedintelui Romaniei si sub egida EFFE este o dovada clara a importantei si amplorii evenimentului, un produs cultural 100% romanesc mentinut la standarde internationale pentru care gireaza atat experti internationali cat si cea mai inalta autoritate din Romania.”, a declarat Dumitru Budrala, director fondator Astra Film Festival.
