Romanian short awarded at Turkey’s Festival on Wheels

The short feature film “Muzica in sange” (Music in the Blood), directed by Alexandru Mavrodineanu, a runner-up in the “Short is good” section of the Festival on Wheels in Turkey, won the Public’s Choice Award, worth EUR 1,000. This is the second prize won by a Romanian production at the Festival on Wheels, after the Golden Bull trophy claimed, last year, by “Politist adjectiv” (Police, An Adjective), by Corneliu Porumboiu. This year the grand trophy went to the Belgian film “Illegal”, by Olivier Masset-Depasse.
