We are happy to announce that the 15th edition of Making Waves will take place exclusively online between February 18-24th, 2021, together with our long-term partners at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY.
The best of #NewRomanianCinema will be back in the US according to the particular times we are living. Yes, we know, this is not like sharing it with friends #AtTheJBFC, in their exquisite theatres, but still…
Soon we will get back to you with the full program and rumor has it that the festival vibe will be more than present, with numerous #USPremieres and #bonusmaterials ready to cross the Atlantic with one single click.
Our #filmfestival developed in time to become a landmark and a reason of pure joy for many of us and you actively took part in this process.
We express our gratitude to your fidelity and encourage you to #DONATE for the 15th edition of MAKING WAVES. Expectedly this year, donations were not as high as usual, but expenses that used to go to travel and accommodation are now going to accommodate the needs of online platforms and marketing, the film rights and complimentary #interviews with directors and actors. One has to reinvent ways to make art present in our homes. Otherwise, as Tony Morrison put it in the Martin Scorsese series with Fran Lebowitz, “we have to face reality”.
Until the tickets will be on sale, feel free to prepare your pajamas, pearl necklaces and favorite cocktail recipes in order to enjoy an intimate yet intense #cinematicexperience in the comfort of your living room.
Let the magic begin!
