Since 2012, MAKING WAVES has been made possible with the generous and enthusiastic support of more than 600 individual donors: fans of Romanian cinema, artists, audience members, and other key figures from the festival’s creative community. Our success has been entirely down to these dedicated individuals, and we are proud to be the first large Romanian event to have been produced through crowdfunding.
For our expanded 12th edition in 2017, which launched the partnership with a leading New York City organization – BAMcinématek, and featured a new format and a diverse programming, we have received a renewed enthusiasm and generous support from many individual donors. To all of them, we want to say a huge thank you!
