Intrigue & Pandemics at the 18th Making Waves New Romanian Cinema Film Fest


Taking place across three Manhattan venues (IFC Center, Roxy Cinema New York, and DCTV’s Firehouse Cinema), the 18th edition of the Making Waves New Romanian Cinema Film Festival showcases the best of contemporary Romanian filmmaking and a couple of unmissable cult classics. Running March 27 to April 2, the festival includes the US premiere of Cristi Puiu's uncompromising MMXX, a 4-episode anthology set against the start of the COVID pandemic.

Libertate by Tudor Giurgiu and Occasional Spies by Oana Bujgoi Giurgiu, are both historical reenactments of lesser-known chapters of the Romanian Revolution and World War II, respectively. Thrill-seekers can get their fix with Boss by Bogdan Mirică, a unique exploration of the noir genre within the current landscape of Romanian cinema.

Documentary aficionados can unlock the past with Vlad Petri’s inventive mix of archival material and literary fiction in Between Revolutions, and immerse themselves in a nuanced examination of a bewildering case of bureaucratic absurdity with Ilinca Călugăreanu’s darkly humorous A Cautionary Tale.
