The BFI London Film Festival will be rolling out the red carpet for Romanian cinema in style: the most acclaimed Romanian directors of the moment will premiere their recent films in Britain’s grandest cinematic showcase.
As our collaboration with the British Film Institute (BFI) hits the seven-year mark, we take this opportunity to shine a spotlight on three amazing new productions, 'Sieranevada' by Cristi Puiu, 'Graduation' by Cristian Mungiu and 'Scarred Hearts' by Radu Jude.
The screenings come after their previous efforts, no less praised by the public and critics alike, have been included in our 'Revolution in Realism. The New Romanian Cinema' season, the greatest retrospective of Romanian film in the UK, which took place at the BFI throughout this June.
Don’t miss the Q&A sessions with Cristian Mungiu and Radu Jude, organised with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute.
The programme also includes the German/Austrian/Romanian coproduction Toni Erdmann by Maren Ade, the Cannes hit and German Oscar candidate, filmed mainly in Bucharest.

The 60th BFI London Film Festival will take place 5-16 October 2016.
