Corina Șuteu, Minister of Culture of Romania, founder of the Making Waves festival and long-time promoter of Romanian Cinema in the U.S., will attend the 2016 edition of Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema.

“Romanian Cinema,” states Ms. Șuteu, “has grown to international prominence in the past decade in spite of a public support system utterly unadapted to the task. Convinced, as I have been since 2006 when I launched the Romanian Film Festival in New York, that Romanian cinema is one of the greatest vehicles for making Romanian arts and culture known in the U.S. and internationally, I have placed cinema, during my mandate as a Minister of Culture of Romania, as one of my priorities, and undertook the kick-start of a reform that will provide Romanian filmmakers and producers, and the film industry as a whole, with better tools.”
