Explore the artistic originality of Romanian filmmakers in the
context of newly found freedom of expression preceded by decades of
political censorship under communist totalitarianism.
The Festival will feature some of the most recent, critically acclaimed films from Romania, including feature films, shorts, and documentaries. The discussion panel and the Q&A sessions, conducted by a group of Romanian film personalities and academics from U.S. universities, will focus on the New Wave of the Romanian cinema. This is the first event of this kind ever organized at a U.S. university. “The Romanian Film Festival & Forum has already shaped into a program which promises to be one of the most exciting events of this year at Stanford” says Robert Wessling, CREEES associate director.
