FESTIVALS: One World Romania Expands and Gets Real!


BUCHAREST: The One World Romania International Human Rights and Documentary FF (16-25 March 2018) spans over 10 days instead of seven, screens over 70 documentaries in over 180 screenings at eight cinemas and partner locations, with over 100 local and foreign guests, for its 11th edition. The 2018 theme is „GET REAL!”

This edition’s focal points are dedicated to subjects and areas which have recently started lengthy debates in the Romanian society. One of the special events is the retrospective of Japanese director Kazuo Hara and producer Sachiko Kobayashi. The two of them will take part in Q&As after the screenings of their four films and will also hold a masterclass.

Japan’s most esteemed documentary filmmaker will also attend the European premiere of his new film Sennan Asbestos Disaster, which was screened so far only at three Asian festivals (Yamagata, Busan, Tokyo) and will be theatrically released in Japan on 10 March 2018.

One World Romania International Human Rights and Documentary Film Festival is organised by the One World Romania Association and its main partner is the Rule of Law Program South East Europe of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.
