Romanian Film Festival

June 3 @ 5:00 pm June 19 @ 8:00 pm

One of the largest events of its kind in North America, the Romanian Film Festival of Washington, DC (RFF) kicks off at historical Miracle Theatre (located at 535 8th Street, SE, Washington, DC) on June 3, 2022, under the motto: “Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania”. Bigger and bolder than the previous two editions, RFF 2022 showcases the creative diversity of a cinema that has become a force on the international arthouse circuit.

Curated by Romanian film critic Mihai Fulger, the program, running for three consecutive weekends from June 3 through June 19, features 12 of the most original and thought-provoking productions of the pandemic years which take the viewer through a veritable deep-dive into the Eastern European psyche, offering a better understanding of current dynamics dramatically unfolding in the Old World. No less than 13 Romanian directors, actors, producers and film critics will cross the Atlantic to introduce their films and meet with the American cinephiles.

Dedicated to the 25th anniversary since the launch of the Strategic Partnership for the 21st Century between Romania and the United States of America, RFF 2022 is organized by the Embassy of Romania to the United States, Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, and Miracle Theatre, with the generous support of Transylvania Bank (Banca Transilvania) from Romania.

Free entry to all screenings (no booking necessary)! Please check the festival’s website for all details – www.romanianfilmfestivaldc.com
