Every year, the Poitiers Film Festival directs the spotlight to a country whose contemporary cinema stands out for its quality and dynamic productions. In 2018, we will be turning our gaze to Romania. The 2000s marked the emergence of a new generation of Romanian filmmakers that journalists described as “new wave” and who soon graced the most prestigious international festivals’ red carpets. We invite you to discover their latest films through a panorama of 8 features along with special guests. These filmmakers hail primarily from the UNATC, Romania’s major film school. This will also be the opportunity to showcase the latest works of young filmmakers from this prestigious establishment with 2 programs of shorts.

This Focus is organized as part of the Saison France-Roumanie 2019.
