Join us for the 5th edition of the British Documentary screenings in Bucharest, from 6 October to 15 December, at the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant - Horia Bernea Hall (3 Monetăriei Street).

The documentaries we selected for the 5th edition were in the official selection of numerous international festivals, many of them having been awarded for best cinematography or having received the audience award, to name but a few of the categories, in festivals such as: Sundance, the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, BAFTA, the Nuremberg International Human Rights Festival and the list could go on.

Once again the "British Documentary" screenings will stir up your curiosity and imagination and will make you question some of the most fervent current affairs, from censorship to lack of access to education, discrimination, decision factors in communities, to war crimes and crimes against humanity.

All documentaries are subtitled in Romanian and entry is free of charge. 


The screenings will take place every Monday, at 1900, with the exception of 10 November and 1 December. The film screening from 1 December is scheduled for Tuesday 2 December.
