European Film Festival 2011 takes place in five cities

The 15th edition of the European Film Festival will take place between May 5 and 29, 2011, in Bucharest, Brasov, Iasi, Tirgu-Mures and Timisoara. The programme of the festival includes over 50 films, from 30 countries. The festival is organized by the Romanian Cultural Institute, and the selection of films was made with the support of the European countries’ embassies and cultural centres.

According to the organizers, besides a record number of films, the 15th edition also brings some premieres. Thus, this year’s edition will bring us the latest production signed by Milos Forman, “Dobre placena prochazka” (A Walk Worthwhile), from 2010. Another premiere is Moldova’s first participation in the festival, with a selection of student films. Also featured on this year’s programme is the premiere of the Romanian film “Metrobranding”, a documentary produced by Mandragora, which will then hit the theatres.

The festival will kick off on May 5, at Bucharest’s Cinema PRO, with the screening of “Essential Killing” (Poland, 2010), directed by Jerzy Skolimowski, awarded the Grand Jury Prix in the 2010 Venice Film Festival, as well as other international distinctions. This year’s Honorary Ambassador of the European Film Festival is Radu Muntean, the director of one of the most heavily-awarded Romanian productions of 2010, “Tuesday, after Christmas”. In Bucharest, the festival will take place between May 5 and 15, featuring screenings at the Studio Cinema and the Eforie Cinémathèque. The festival will continue in Brasov (May 12-15), Iasi (May 19-22), Timisoara (May 19-22) and Tirgu-Mures (May 26-29).
