Corneliu Porumboiu honored at MTR

The Romanian Director’s New Cinema Theatre (NCRR) at the Romanian Peasant’s Museum (MTR) in Bucharest invites film fans on tonight, at 9.15, at an open-air projection of the film that won the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, “12.08 East of Bucharest” directed by Corneliu Porumboiu. At the 2009 edition of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, Porumboiu won the Award of the Jury at the “Un Certain Regard” section and the “FIPRESCI” Award (the Prize of Critics and Journalists) at the same section for his film “Police: Adjective.” It is Corneliu Porumboiu’s third victory at the Cannes Film Festival. His initial achievement occurred in 2004, when he won the second place of the Cinefondation competition for the best students’ film: “A Journey to the City.” The Romanian Director’s New Cinema Theatre – the Horia Bernea Studio” was launched by the Romanian Peasant’s Museum and is targeted on presenting a selection of European fiction films and documentaries, promoting young Romanian directors and their artistic creations, as well as encouraging the dialogue between film makers and the public.
