Film in Romania

Romanian filmmaking attracted world attention in 2007 when two films were honoured at the Cannes Film Festival. Cristian Mingui’s 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, a harrowing portrayal of illegal abortion, was awarded the prestigious Palme D’Or, and California Dreamin’, a tale about American soldiers during the Kosovo conflict, won Un Certain Regard for its director Cristian Nemescu.

It was not long ago that the Romanian film industry was better known as a service industry for foreign filmmakers. Notably, Anthony Minghella’s US$83million Cold Mountain was filmed in Romania in 2003. “Cold Mountain,” said Minghella “was proof to Hollywood producers that shooting films in Romania is a viable option".

With its wealth of beautiful locations, skilled film technicians and financial incentives , Romania remains an attractive setting for production companies. 8 major foreign productions were filmed in Romania in 2006: Pu-239; Borat; Blood and Chocolate; Pulse; Shadow Man; Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj; Second in Command and Francis Ford Coppola’s Youth Without Youth.

As well as boosting the Romanian economy, the foreign investment has helped develop local talent and has inspired home-grown young filmmakers.
