THE ROMANIAN FILM FESTIVAL, 9TH EDITION: "HomeLands"

WHEN: NOVEMBER 11-27, 2022

The 9th edition of the RFF titled Homelands reflects on this year’s current events, while celebrating the power of film to map out new meanings into a world where people have been displaced by wars, economic crises, political instability, and natural disasters.  The internationally acclaimed movies featured in our carefully curated selection, covering all forms and genres, as well as our film related events with special guests, will redefine our sense of homelands and belonging, in relation to our families, neighbors, countries of origin, and, by extension, to our planet itself. As Daniel Ursache’s poster illustrates, movies remain, year after year, our main path and answer, when everything else seems out of place. 

After two successful virtual editions in 2020 and 2021, the festival will continue to showcase the best of the newest film productions from Romania and Europe, promoting outstanding directors, both established and up-and-coming. It will also keep its partnership with Northwest Film Forum, Romanian Film Fest Arizona and its sister-organizations ARCS Arizona and ARCS Detroit. The Romanian Film Festival Arizona, will have its in person screenings November 19-20 at Majestic Tempe 7 in Tempe, AZ.

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.
