East Meets East

This exciting project brought together highly-acclaimed Romanian filmmakers with young people from London’s East End.  The final film was screened at the East End Film Festival, July 2012.

The Romanian New Wave of filmmakers has been taking European film festivals, critics and audiences by storm in recent years, and the project is a very special chance to work with:

  • Radu Muntean (winner of Jury Special Prize in Namur and Golden Owl Award in Leeds)
  • Alexandru Baciu (scriptwriter)
  • Catalin Cristutiu (editor)
  • Anamaria Marinca (BAFTA winner actress)

Participants were filmmakers aged between 18-25, living in the Olympic boroughs (Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Greenwich, Newham, Barking and Dagenham, Waltham Forest).

East meets East was a partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute, with additional support from the East End Film Festival
