FREE ADMISSION - SCREENED IN ROMANIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Stanford, California, April 11, 2017 - The 6th Annual Romanian Film Festival at Stanford, UC Berkeley and San Francisco State University, with additional screenings at University of California Los Angeles and San Francisco Art Institute, centers on the theme “DILLEMAS, DECISIONS, DESTINIES” with a selection of films focusing on history, humor and events that continue to shape the contemporary filmmaking landscape. Some of the programed films are first major works, while others represent established artists. Every year these filmmakers continue to make their mark on the international stage by garnering acclaim for their bold and exceptional storytelling.

The festival presents Cristian Mungiu’s rite of passage fable “Graduation”, Best Director winner at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Bogdan Mirica’s psychological thriller “Dogs”, winner of FIPRESCI AWARD at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, Radu Jude’s sardonic, ironic and cruel (w)eastern “Aferim”, Silver Bear for Best Director at 2015 Berlin Film Festival, Romanian-French co-production “The Fixer” by Adrian Sitaru, “Double”, Catrinel Danaiata’s film directorial debut and Paul Negoescu’s low-budget comedy of character “Two Lottery Tickets” based on Ioan Luca Caragiale’s short story.

The Romanian film festival continues its series of interdisciplinary and comparative discussions on the realities of Eastern Europe in today's increasingly globalized world. Audiences are invited to reflect upon key moments during pre and post-1945 European history from Romania’s filmmaker’s perspective.

The audience is welcomed to attend the screening of the following documentary films: Sinisa Dragin’s Romanian-Serbian co-production of “The Forrest” about past presidents, paintings and problems that ensue; and Claudiu Mitcu’s “The Network” about chemotherapy drug “smugglers.”

The audience will have a unique opportunity to:

• hear from our special guests, directors Bogdan Mirica, and actors Adrian Titieni, Silver Hugo, Best Actor, Chicago International Film Festival 2016

• Maria Dinulescu, during our Q&As and roundtables/panel discussions.

• view the Poster Exhibit: students from "Nicolae Tonitza" High School, Bucharest under the guidance of art professor Gavril Kovacs created original posters that illustrate this year's theme: DILLEMAS, DECISIONS, DESTINIES

California, ecranul și filmul românesc contemporan

Maria Dinulescu, Adrian Titieni, Bogdan Mirică și Doru Pop invitați de onoare la Festivalul de Film Românesc de la Stanford University, UC Berkeley, San Francisco State University și University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) , la San Francisco și Los Angeles

ICR New York susține, și în acest an, participarea unor apreciate producții cinematografice din țara noastră la "Festivalul de Film Românesc de la Stanford University, UC Berkeley, San Francisco State University și University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)", ediția a VI-a. Festivalul (http://www.rofilmfestival.com) va avea loc în perioada 20-25 aprilie 2017, la San Francisco și la Los Angeles.

Amplul eveniment s-a consacrat cu succes drept un dialog interactiv despre filmul românesc contemporan, în spațiul academic american (studenți, cercetători în domeniu și public larg), la care participă - cum au demonstrat edițiile precedente ale manifestării din California – mii de reprezentanți ai marilor universități amintite și ai publicului cinefil (majoritar americani).

Anul acesta, în premieră, va fi organizat un eveniment cinematografic și la San Francisco Art Institute.

Filmele artistice care vor fi prezentate în festival sunt: "Bacalaureat", de Cristian Mungiu, "Câini", de Bogdan Mirică; "Aferim", de Radu Jude, "Dublu", de Catrinel Dănăiață, "Două lozuri", de Paul Negoescu și "Fixeur", de Adrian Sitaru. De asemenea, vor fi prezentate și documentarele: “Pădurea”, de Sinisa Dragin, "Rețeaua", de Claudiu Mitcu, “Raisa”, de Pavel Cuzuioc.

Din România, ca invitați speciali, vor fi prezenți Adrian Titieni, actor și regizor, Maria Dinulescu, actriță, Bogdan Mirică, regizor, și conf. univ. Doru Pop.

Proiectul de continuare a co-organizării Festivalului de film românesc, aflat acum la cea de-a șasea ediție, reprezintă continuitatea unui parteneriat de succes cu patru universități americane de prestigiu: Stanford University, UC Berkeley, San Francisco State Univesity și University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Manifestarea este cel mai important festival de film românesc care are loc în spațiul american, în influentul mediu academic din California.

Festivalul de Film Românesc de la Stanford University, UC Berkeley, San Francisco State University și UCLA a fost creat din dorința de a extinde și menține dialogul despre cultura română, prin prisma cinematografiei românești, în spațiul academic american. Ca și în anii precedenți, ediția din acest an a festivalului este organizată prin efort voluntar, fără nici un interes financiar, atât din partea echipei organizatorice, cât și din partea studenților, profesorilor și cercetătorilor din mediul universitar american.

Manifestarea culturală românească se desfășoară cu intrare gratuită.

Proiectul este inclus în planul anual pe 2017 al ICR New York, ca urmare a succesului înregistrat la edițiile antrioare ale festivalului. Prin acest proiect, ICR New York promovează filmul românesc și în California. Și de această dată, ICR NY a ținut cont atât de calitatea filmelor propuse, cât și prestigiul artistic al invitaților din România și din SUA.

Concret, la organizarea și finanțarea festivalului participă urmatoarele instituții: Special Language Program, Stanford University (SLP) & the Institute of Slavic, East European, & Eurasian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley (ISEEES), Europe Center, Stanford University, Language Center, Stanford University, Slavic Department, Stanford University, Honorary Consulate of Romania in San Francisco, The Workmen's Circle Northern California, Chair Diana Scott, the Drama Department, Stanford University, Department of Cinema, San Francisco State University, Blue Collar Films, UNAFF/UNAFF Traveling Film Festival, Palo Alto/Stanford, Casa Romana (Bay Area Romanian Community) și ICR New York.

Echipa locală a festivalului: Laura Toma, Producer/Director Romanian Film Festival Founder, Cultural Director Casa Română, Suzan Negip-Schatt, Producer/Director, Romanian Film Festival Founder, Lecturer Stanford University, Ludwig Galambos, Producer/Director, Romanian Film Festival Founder, Visiting Scholar, Stanford University și Florentina Mocanu, Producer/Director, Romanian Film Festival Founder, PhD Drama Stanford University.
