The Romanian Cinematheque’s autumn season debuts with a controversial film that claims precedence in several respects: it is the first documentary included in our programme, it is screened in London for the first time and it is made by a first-time director. Do not miss Tom Wilson’s 'The București Experiment' on 25 September!
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.
We are thrilled to announce that the star of our National Day Gala Recital is the outstanding Teodora Gheorghiu, the revelation of this year’s Glyndebourne Festival.

Twenty five years after the fall of one of the harshest dictatorships in Eastern Europe, we conjure a period of turmoil and redemption through theatre’s evocative flair, with legendary actor Ion Caramitru, a central figure of the December 1989 Revolution.
Illustrator and explorer George Butler’s love letter to Transylvania, the exhibition 'Capturing Carpathia', presented by Global Heritage Fund UK together with RCI London, opens in 1 Belgrave Sq as part of our perennial commitment to reveal the sights, sounds and tastes of Romania through the eyes of British travellers and artists.
