ROMANIAN, ADJECTIVE, the 7th edition of the Romanian Film Festival in London, is happy to produce another viewing of the country’s most exciting and serious new talents.
Thanks to Artificial Eye, we will open the festival with Corneliu Porumboiu’s POLICE, ADJECTIVE – a real treat for arthouse fans, in the company of the director. Not ignoring the greats from the past, we will also introduce the classic SAND CLIFFS, along with new work – short and long – from last year’s cinematic crop. Special guests from Romania will be attending selected screenings and connected events: director Corneliu Porumboiu, screen legend Victor Rebengiuc, veteran director Dan Pita, Bafta-winning actress Anamaria Marinca, actress Ada Condeescu, anthropologist Vlad Naumescu, producer Dan Burlac, film critic Magda Mihailescu, author and journalist Liviu Antonesei, historian Stejarel Olaru, TV producer Marian Voicu, and Ioana Voicu-Arnautoiu, guest speaker on the Romanian anti-communist resistance.
