We can see the forest by the trees and the sea by the waves, including cinematic waves. Celebrated film-makers are all permanent residents of our cinematic programmes and projects. Our film promotion activity consists inter alia of participation in major festivals, special screenings, exhibitions, minifestivals, information packages and professional representation. And of course there is the Cinematheque. The Romanian Cinematheque.
The events pass, the books are here to stay. For RCI London, the promotion of Romanian literature is a perennial priority. Our editorial projects are carried out with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute’s National Book Centre in Bucharest. The goal is to publish the best in Romanian literature and with the best publishing houses.
Done in partnership with British or Romanian institutions, our theatrical and dance productions often take place at important festivals or key venues. The promotion of Romanian theatre and dance means also working closely with Barbican Centre, Edinburgh International Festival, Southbank Centre and Siobhan Davies Studios, Theatre Royal Stratford East among others.
Romania’s National Culture Day event is also dedicated to a defining component of traditional life. Made famous by Matisse and a global fashion item by the hippie generation, the Romanian blouse has not seized to be source of inspiration for contemporary fashion designers as proved by 'Mﾄナastra – The Untold Story of the Romanian Blouse', the exhibition that takes one through centuries of craftsmanship and chromatic imagination.
