Once again, a refreshing break from the overpowering distraction of dominant Hollywood production values, the Romanian Film Festival provides a welcome platform for truly thought-provoking drama.- Monday, April 30, 2018
Good Bye RFF 2018
 I find characters are reassuringly regular; similar in some ways to myself or to people I know or have met. The power of the drama is invariably led from the front by the players themselves, supported by modern filming techniques/choice use of sound, never the other way round. These are often world-class performances and it is a privilege to rub shoulders with the players themselves and to hear them speak about the project. I find my mind occupied with contemplating my own responses to challenging situations. Far from leaving the cinema exhausted I am energised, my mind active, awake. Thank you as always for a stimulating and wonderfully human cultural experience. Rob Waite

Romanian films on DVD, available in the UK from Curzon Artificial Eye- Monday, December 19, 2016








BEYOND THE HILLS. From the Palme d’Or winning director of 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days comes a powerful film set in a religious community in Romania.


IF I WANT TO WHISTLE, I WHISTLE. Winner of the Silver Bear at 2010’s Berlin Film Festival, Florin Serban’s acclaimed feature film debut is a compelling and realistic look behind the walls of a tough young offender's institute.


CALIFORNIA DREAMIN' (ENDLESS). California Dreaming’ is a timely, witty and perceptive examination of geopolitical longing and a lack of interventionism.


4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS & 2 DAYS. Winner of the 2007 Cannes Palme d’Or, the acclaimed drama heralded the way for what came to be known as the Romanian New Wave.


POLICE, ADJECTIVE. The intelligent, fascinating satire of bureaucracy is yet another fascinating slice of Romanian new wave.


KATALIN VARGA. Praised for its sound design as well as its ominous atmosphere, the award-winning revenge fable marks British director Peter Strickland’s directorial debut.
