The topic of the film screening destined to officially open BIEFF 2015 on Sunday, November 29, at the Peasant’s Museum Cinema in Bucharest, starting at 7 PM, is the subject Refugee crisis seen through artists’ eyes. It is an opportunity to meditate on a highly present topic for the audience.
In the line of the success registered by the screenings of BIEFF 2014, held in unconventional locations, the festival returns this year in a brand new format: films seek their appropriate audience in an itinerary edition that starts on November 29 and is destined to last throughout December.
“The exodus from the Middle East and its associated conflicts march a historical moment we are now witnessing, and yet, the tensions that have escalated in the last few months are the results of several years of accumulations, studied by filmmakers and revealed in their films.
The opening screening of BIEFF consists of six short films, all of them dedicated to human rights, all of them questioning the fragile line between the status of an immigrant and that of a refugee, as well as the situations that determine certain categories of people to become refugees inside their own countries, and will be followed by a debate organized in partnership with PoliticALL”, the press release issued by the organizers announced.
The BIEFF selection is organized this year, as well, on three topics of interest: Migrants, Refugees & Inner Conflicts, Body Expressivity, Love as the Sweetest Experiment, Youth Rituals and Romanian Cinema Experiments.
In all of these categories, BIEFF maintains its partnerships with: Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in Cannes, Rotterdam IFF, Oberhausen ISFF.
The screenings will be held at the Peasant’s Museum Cinema, the Romanian Cultural Institute, UNA Gallery, the “Gheorghe Sincai” National High School and other locations, more or less cinema – related.
