THE ROMANIAN FILM FESTIVAL, 8TH EDITION: “One Eye Laughing, One Eye Crying: Back to Wonderland” 

WHEN: NOVEMBER 12-21, 2021

WHERE: Northwest Film Forum (online platform)

After a successful virtual edition in 2020, the Romanian Film Festival in Seattle brings you back to Wonderland, this time with exclusively new film productions from Romania and Europe, showcasing the creative spirit and resilience of young, or more established directors. Moreover, the festival expands with a new branch in Detroit and a partnership with Arizona Romanian Film Festival. More details will be shared soon. 

Daniel Ursache has worked his magic again designing the visual concept of the 8th edition of the festival. Get comfortable under the dim light of your home screen or projector for a two-week feast of films that you can watch together with your loved ones between November 12-22, 2021.

We will offer you virtual opportunities to interact with local, national and international special guests. Stay tuned to find out about our exciting partnerships, line-up, guest list, and schedule.   

In the meantime, please support our fundraising efforts. Let’s keep the story going for the 8th time!
