One World Romania International Documentary and Human Rights Festival will return with a new edition taking place this year between 15-24 March. As this year marks 30 years since the 1989 Romanian Revolution, which represented the end of communism in Romania, as well as 30 years since the Fall of the Berlin Wall or the first free elections in Czechoslovakia and Poland, the film festival will focus on how democracy has changed Romania and Eastern Europe throughout the last 30 years.
Around 50 guest directors and creatives will join the 2019 edition of the documentary festival, which will take place in five main locations across Bucharest: Cinema Elvire Popesco - The French Institute, ARCUB, Eforie Cinema, POINT and #Pavilion 32 - Goethe-Institut Bucharest.
Individual subscriptions and tickets are available via Eventbook.
