‘Golden Age Memories’ to attend 14 festivals in five months

The film “Golden Age Memories,” critically acclaimed at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, will attend 14 international film festivals until the end of the year to come.

On August 12, in Bosnia, the film will open the Sarajevo Film Festival and afterwards, it will attend the Festival in Vukovar (Croatia) during August 27–31.

The representatives of the film will take a break in September, but October will be extremely demanding for them, because “Golden Age Memories” will attend no less than seven festivals. First, the film will be presented in Vancouver (Canada), during October 1–16, and afterwards, it will be presented in Namur (Belgium), during 2–9. Afterwards, it will attend the Festival in Pusan, Korea, during October 8–16, and the Festival in Abu Dhabi, UAE. By the end of October, the film will attend a few European Festivals: the one in Lyon, France, during October 13–16, and in London during October 14–19. During October 28–November 8, “Golden Age Memories” will be presented at the Festival in Canberra, Australia and afterwards, at the one in Mumbai, India. Starting on November 6, the film will be presented at the Festivals in Sevilla, Spain, and in Taipei, Taiwan. During November 11–20, it will attend the Festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and afterwards, it will be broadcasted at the similar event in Dubai, UAE, during December 9–16.

Sought by distributors from the very moment of its viewing at the Cannes Film Festival, similarly to Corneliu Porumboiu’s “Policeman: Adjective,” the production realized by Mobrafilms is most likely to become the greatest commercially successful Romanian film of 2009. “Golden Age Memories,” the collection of short films directed by Cristian Mungiu, Oana Uricaru, Hanno Hoefer, Razvan Marculescu and Constantin Popescu, was selected in the Un Certain Regard Category of the Cannes Film Festival. Each film of the “Golden Age Memories” presents a story from Romania during the Ceausescu Regime, as witnessed by ordinary people, anecdotes that helped Romanians to survive Ceausescu’s dictatorship, absurd stories and urban legends.
