Free Reel Romania


Free Reel Romania is a non-profit project presented by Free Reel Mobile Cinema, a UK-based initiative of Cinephilia Services Ltd. The project will carry out a six-week programme of free film screenings and short filmmaking workshops in rural communities across Romania that have restricted access to cultural activities, across June and July 2012. The activities are designed to open up a dialogue across a spectrum of local and global issues, and to empower people to have a greater voice within their own community and the wider world. Short films produced in the workshops will subsequently be screened to local communities and toured around Romania as part of the mobile cinema touring programme, as well as being showcased in special screenings at well-established film festivals in Romania and the UK throughout 2012 and beyond.


This pilot project is produced in partnership with several established Romanian NGOs, and in collaboration with the NexT International Film Festival in Bucharest and the Transylvania International Film Festival in Cluj. Free Reel Romania also has as its programming partners Astra documentary festival in Sibiu, One World Romania human rights film festival in Bucharest and Open City documentary festival in London.

They are currently appealing for public or private donations to aid in their running costs and they also welcome any offers of sponsorship or collaborative partnerships. For more information, to become involved or to donate please visit the website www.freereel.org or contact jodie@freereel.org.
