We can see the forest by the trees and the sea by the waves, including cinematic waves. Celebrated film-makers like Puiu, Mungiu or Pintilie among many others are permanent residents of our cinematic programme. Our film promotion activity consists mostly of special screenings and participation in major festivals. 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. Most of 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.
Sorin Zlat Trio, one of the best known Romanian jazz groups in Europe, debuts in London this March at two of the capital’s most prestigious clubs: Pizza Express Live Soho and Vortex Jazz Club.

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.
