Who We Are & What We Do

The Romanian Film Festival& Discussion Forum at Stanford University, San Francisco State University and Beyond is organized by a group of film scholars and film aficionados dedicated to presenting the complex and vibrant culture of Romania to the American audiences.

We have made this festival free and open to the public in order to make this experience available to as many people as possible. The festival’s team works entirely on a volunteer basis devoting time and effort to making this event possible.
