“The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu”, the great winner of Best Film Fest 2011

Andrei Ujica’s film is the great winner of the Best Film Fest, having claimed both the Best Director and the 2010 Best Romanian Film trophies, which were awarded on Friday night, in a gala hosted by the Studio Cinema in Bucharest. The award honouring the best film shown in Romanian cinemas in 2010 went to David Fincher’s “The Social Network”, while “The White Ribbon”, by Michael Haneke, was judged the best European film, the organizers inform. Victor Rebengiuc was crowned the best actor in a Romanian production, for his performance in “Medal of Honour”, while the best actress award went to Ozana Oancea, for her part in “First of All, Felicia”, directed by Razvan Radulescu and Melissa de Raaf. The 2010 box-office leader in Romania is “Avatar”, by James Cameron, which collected RON 13,240,862 last year in Romanian cinemas, while the best-selling Romanian film was “If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle”, by Florin Serban (RON 868,964 and 55,858 spectators). Best Film Fest, a festival which awards the best films and pays homage to the best performances presented in Romanian cinemas in the preceding year, takes place between January 28 and February 3, at the Studio Cinema in the Capital. For the first time, this year’s edition of the festival will go on for three weeks, in three cities: Bucharest (Jan 28 – Feb 3), Vaslui (Feb 4 – 10) and Ramnicu Valcea (Feb 11 – 17).
