Historical Film Festival opens once again Rasnov Fortress to visitors

The Rasnov Fortress opens its gates on the 2nd edition of the Historical Film Festival, running between August 6 and 15. The festival invites the public to embark on a time travel, featuring the latest historical film productions in Europe, as well as features covering two important anniversaries: 135 years since the birth of Queen Marie of Romania and 65 years since the end of World War II.

Entertainment in the festival will be provided by concerts of inter-war music, a Celtic harp recital, lieds by Romanian composers and an anniversary concert dedicated to Queen Marie. The inter-war period will also be recreated by means of photography exhibitions and book launches throughout the festival.

The festival is organized by Rasnov City Hall and the ROSENAU Tourism Association and the public’s access is free. Manifestations will be held in the Rasnov Fortress, in the theatre and in the city’s historic centre.

Rasnov is closely bound with the history of Romanian cinema, as it is here that the great Romanian directors shot many of their historical films. The organizers propose to “restore the area’s tourist and cultural potential and turn Rasnov into a haven for history-, art- and nature aficionados,” the director of the festival, Nicolae Pepene, stated.
