The Profusion Scholarship Scheme:- Wednesday, December 2, 2015

We are happy to announce the winner of the 2015 Profusion Scholarship, which is awarded every year during the Romanian Film Festival. The aim of the Profusion scholarship is to contribute to the development of emerging film makers with a Romanian background. It promotes films based on the diasporic experience and encourages the development of young film makers from the diaspora. The first scholarships were awarded to the young Romanian cinematographer Simona Susnea (2013), and to London-based Romanian film maker Maria Chiriac (2014).

The 2015 winner is Cristian Havrincea, a documentary filmmaker and camera journalist who graduated MA Screen Documentary from Goldsmiths College (2013) and BA (Hons) Media Studies from the University of West London (2012). He has recently directed and produced Nobody’s People, a short documentary which represents the Park Lane homeless phenomenon outside of the usual stereotypes. As a UK resident for more than a decade, Cristian’s focus mainly has depicted the challenges faced by those who were trying to build a new life away from their home countries. Through his work in film and for different media outlets from around the world, Cristian has always been a great promoter of Romanian values.

The Profusion Scholarship Scheme is run by Profusion International, the organisers of The Romanian Film Festival in London (RFF). Profusion is an independent organisation, a small group of passionate and dedicated individuals committed to providing an amazing display of Romanian films in the UK. RFF is a not- for-profit enterprise, functioning with the help of grants and sponsorship from numerous friends and supporters.

The 2015 Profusion Scholarship is funded in partnership with Lebara Play, the new entertainment service from Lebara.
