The 11th Romanian Film Festival (RFF) in London, which takes place between 13 – 16 November 2014, has announced that it will open with the spectacular, flamboyant, beautifully shot CLOSER TO THE MOON, directed by Nae Caranfil (Asfalt Tango, Filantropica). CLOSER TO THE MOON was filmed in English with an international cast, and offers its own solution to the mystery at the heart of the story. The following Q&A promises to be electric as Nae Caranfil, the director of this extraordinary historical reconstruction, explores with the audience the meaning of the story for the Romania of the 1950s.

The festival will close with the highly acclaimed 1964 classic First World War memoir, FOREST OF THE HANGED, directed by Liviu Ciulei (Valurile Dunarii – Danube’s Waves, O scrisoare pierduta – A Lost Letter). Lead actor Victor Rebengiuc will be present to help celebrate the occasion, in an amazing moment of reunion with his long term partner Mariana Mihut. Victor and Mariana met on the set of FOREST OF THE HANGED, 50 years ago, and now they will come together, after the movie, to discuss the history associated with this classic narrative. FOREST OF THE HANGED became the first Romanian film to achieve wide international recognition: Best Director in Cannes 1965.

CLOSER TO THE MOON will take place on Thursday 13 November, 6.15pm at Curzon Soho in London, while FOREST OF THE HANGED will take place on Sunday 16 November, 4.45pm, also the same cinema. Tickets will go on sale at Curzon Soho later this month.
