Once again, a refreshing break from the overpowering distraction of dominant Hollywood production values, the Romanian Film Festival provides a welcome platform for truly thought-provoking drama.

Good Bye RFF 2018
 I find characters are reassuringly regular; similar in some ways to myself or to people I know or have met. The power of the drama is invariably led from the front by the players themselves, supported by modern filming techniques/choice use of sound, never the other way round. These are often world-class performances and it is a privilege to rub shoulders with the players themselves and to hear them speak about the project. I find my mind occupied with contemplating my own responses to challenging situations. Far from leaving the cinema exhausted I am energised, my mind active, awake. Thank you as always for a stimulating and wonderfully human cultural experience. Rob Waite
