RFF brings to London the latest, the most exciting and the most illuminating productions from the ferment of the Romanian film industry.

The RFF took off in 2003. The Romanian New Wave cinema was about to take off at the same time, highlighting remarkable actors and young directors. Supported and inspired by these sparkling new talents, the Festival went from strength to strength. At the same time, the Festival has continued to celebrate the classic Romanian cinema, acquainting British audiences with the best in our tradition.

The history and successful track record make the Romanian Film Festival in London one of the major Romanian cultural events of the year in Britain. From its beginnings at a small art-house cinema in Central London, it has grown steadily to present a wide spectrum of Romanian-language cinema, from major hits to cutting edge new directors and retrospectives. RFF reaches an important audience eager to celebrate Romanian achievements.

TURNING THE PAGE is a phrase which speaks of an end, but, more importantly – a beginning. Romanian film makers wrote a new chapter of international film making with the New Wave. Now the films on show look back past the New Wave in terms of technique, and forward in terms of content, social analysis and storytelling. Above all, these stories speak of a new understanding and a new relationship with the outside world. The windows have been thrown open! We’re turning the page!
