Romanian Film Festival in London from 2nd July

21st May 2010:
If you are a Romanian film buff, get ready for the 7th edition of Romanian Film Festival in London. It is scheduled to take place from 2nd to 4th July 2010 at the Curzon Mayfair cinema.

The festival begins with ‘Police, Adjective’, by Corneliu Porumboiu, in the presence of the director.

In October 2003, the first edition of the Romanian Film Festival was launched. It was also the first ever festival in the UK dedicated to Romanian film. The festival was organised as the quality of the films and their impact was growing and need was being felt for a major event to showcase Romanian cinema in the UK.

The event presents annually the best of new Romanian cinema and rediscovered classics, as the festival does not neglect “the greats of cinematography, nor the pictures that have gained eternal cult status”.

Inspired by the strength of the Romanian New Wave, the festival brings the hottest and top prize-winning productions. The festival also takes into consideration the educational aspect, so it brings from the very first edition special guests, directors, producers and actors to London to take part in question and answer sessions and meetings with the audience.

The festival is organised by the Ratiu Foundation and Romanian Cultural Centre in London with the support of the National Centre of Cinematography, Bucharest, Curzon Cinemas, and Artificial Eye. The venue address is 38 Curzon Street, W1J 7TY.
