Five Romanian shorts at 2010 Pannohalma

Between August 21-23, 2010, Pannohalma, a Hungarian site important both in terms of the history and the geography of the region, will host the 7th edition of the “Arcus Temporum” Festival. As in preceding years, this year, the festival organizers will embark on an exploration of the cultural wealth of Hungary, as well as that of neighbouring countries. Romania is present in the festival by a film night in which five shorts will be screened. The last night of the festival, August 23, will be dedicated to Romanian cinema. The five short feature films to be screened were presented, before, in the 2008 Romanian Film Week in Budapest – “Short film in the long run”.


The following productions were selected: Gabriel Sarbu – La drumul mare (Life’s Hard, 2007); Adrian Sitaru – Valuri (Waves, 2007); Radu Jude – Lampa cu caciula (The Tube with a Hat, 2006); Ciprian Alexandrescu – Interior. Scara de bloc (Interior. Block of flats, 2007); Florin Piersic Jr. – Venetia (Venice, 2008).


As far as music is concerned, the organizers of the festival, the Cultural Direction of Pannohama Abbey, dedicate 2010 to the Austrian-born composer and conductor Beat Furrer, the city’s guest of honour. He will be accompanied by the Klangforum Wien, a renowned ensemble which will play his works. Guests in earlier editions of the “Arcus Temporum” Festival included: Sofia Gubaidulina (the Tatar Republic), Salvatore Sciarrino (Sicily), Valentin Silvestrov, Bent Sorensen (Denmark) and, in 2009, Giya Kancheli (Georgia).


On the opening night, the Late Night Jazz section will feature Ida Kelarova, from the Czech Republic, who will sing Gipsy ballads.
