DaKINO marks 20th anniversary by special edition

The DaKINO International Film Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary by a special edition which will bring together in Bucharest the winners of the 19 preceding editions, guests which have graced the Festival with their presence throughout the years, jury members, fellow-organizers of international film festivals and international distributors. Accor­ding to a release by the organizers, the highlight of the anniversary edition will be the extraordinary concert offered by Goran Bregovic alongside the Wedding and Funeral Orchestra, on Friday, November 26, at the Palace Hall, starting 8 pm.

Romanian film professionals – directors, producers, cinematographers, actors, film critics, distributors –, whose names have been associated in one way or another to the festival in the past 20 years, will all be present in this year’s edition. Five Romanian directors were awarded the DaKINO Trophy since the festival was initiated: Florin Iepan for “Hotel Cismigiu” (1992), Alexandru Maftei for “In fiecare zi e noapte” (Everyday it’s night-time, 1995), Titus Muntean for “O sa fie bine” (All will be well, 1996), Hanno Hofer for “Ajutoa­re umanitare” (Humanita­rian Aid, 2001) and Radu Jude for “Lampa cu caciula” (The Tube with a Hat, 2006). The list of directors expected in Bucharest as winners of earlier editions of DaKINO, who have made a name for themselves in the meantime, directing successful feature films, includes Jonathan Ogilve (“This Film is a Dog”, the 1996 Academia Catavencu award), who will present, in a Romanian premiere, his latest feature film, “The Tender Hook” (2008), Frederic Pelle (“Des morceaux de ma femme”, the 2000 DaKINO Trophy), with “La tête ailleurs” (2010), and Ari Bafalouka (“See No Evil”, the 2002 DaKINO Trophy), whose first feature film, “Apnea” (2010), was included in the official competition of the 2010 Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
