Albania

  • The Tirana International Film festival takes place each late November/early December and features both short feature films from its international competition winners as well as cinematic work from Albanian filmmakers.
  • Summer’s Day takes place on the 14th of March and the legend says that it is always sunny on that day (which has proven to be true so far)! A range of activities take place on this day especially with live music, and the Albanian tradition is to wear a “verore” on their wrist, which is essentially a threaded bracelet, to welcome summer.
