The International Festival of Art, Ecology and Tourism Film (IFFEST DOCUMENT.ART) is returning to Romania’s capital city 20 years after its debut, in an experimental formula, with Romanian tourism films only, on September 26 throughout 28.
Part of the September calendar of international events of the World Tourism Organization, of the International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT) in Vienna, of ITCO in Rome, the IFFEST DOCUMENT.ART leaves cinemas and opts for other halls with formative-educational valences, with ecology and tourism films to be screened on Thursday and on Saturday at the ‘Grigore Antipa’ National Museum of Natural History, according to a press release that the museum has issued for Agerpres.
The opening of the ‘Inside / Outside’ exhibition of decorative art by Daniela Frumuseanu and Alexandra Buduru, presented by Doina Isfanoni, an art critic and historian, will precede the official opening of the IFFEST DOCUMENT. ART.
The art and tourism films will meet the book-lovers who will visit the Bastille bookstore in Bucharest’s Roman Square, while the Spanish documentary and some of its authors will meet with the movie-goers who will attend the galas hosted on September 27 and 28 by the Cervantes Institute in Bucharest.
Competing in the festival will be as many as 27 films from Austria, Brazil, Czech Republic, Chile, Croatia, Cuba, Dubai, France, Italy, Kenya, Poland, Portugal, Russia and Spain. Film directors from Austria, Italy, Poland, Serbia, Spain and, of course, Romania, have confirmed their presence at the festival. Three Romanian films will enter for the first time in the final of the best documentaries.
The Festival’s closing and prize-awarding ceremony will be held on Saturday, September 28 at the ‘Grigore Antipa’ Museum.
The IFFEST DOCUMENT. ART. was founded in 1993 by Nicolae Luca, a writer and film-maker, and it is organized by the Romanian Film Association ‘Document.Art.’ with support from the Film-Makers Union of Romania. The Festival’s partners are the National Arts University of Bucharest, the ‘Grigore Antipa’ National Museum of Natural History in Bucharest, the Cervantes Institute in Bucharest, and the Bastille bookstore.
