The Romanian Film Festival 2023: One Eye Laughing, One Eye Crying [Hybrid]
The Romanian Film Festival: One Eye Laughing, One Eye Crying [Hybrid]
The Romanian Film Festival Seattle returns to SIFF Uptown Cinema (its home until 2020) for its 10th edition! It continues the following weekend at Northwest Film Forum, Nov. 11–12, and will also be available online in the continental US.
This year’s nuanced program of critically-acclaimed and newly released films celebrates the rich cultural fabric of Romania, while exploring current topics with unflinchingly honest perspectives that festival fans have come to expect from Romanian cinema.
Started in 2014 to bring thought-provoking and award-winning productions from Romania and Eastern Europe to Seattle audiences, the festival has adapted and blossomed over the years. Its initial grassroots effort to mobilize the Seattle area’s Romanian community met with overwhelming success, and the festival built a loyal audience that supported them through the pandemic via the Forum’s Eventive virtual cinema platform.
The festival is co-organized with ARCS Arizona and ARCS Detroit. It keeps its partnership with the Romanian Film Fest Arizona, whose in-person screenings take place Nov. 11–12 at Majestic Tempe 7 in Tempe, AZ. Poster art for 2023 is by Daniel Ursache.
