Serile Filmului Românesc is one of the biggest film festivals In Romania! SFR is organized by ARTIS organization.

Serile Filmului Românesc (in translation Evenings of the Romanian Films)


It started with the main objective to introduce the Romanian public to the Romanian cinematography (and not only), directors, actors, and to bring the public back into the state cinemas, which currently are in a degrading state. Our aim is to do everything in our hands to restore the cinemas and make the public aware of the famous actors and movies which have, have had, an important part in our lives. A first step in this direction was already made in 2017, in November, when we inaugurated the first state cinema after the 1990, in Romania, with the highest technology in the field, DCP, 7.1 surround system, 3D screen.

This festival is organized every year, for a period of 5 days, with a number of 3-6 movies projected/day, in multiple locations (a different movie in every location) and the next edition is organized between 9-13 of August, 2023. Every year, for 5 days, Iassy (the city in Romania where the festival is held), many directors, actors and producers come and meet the public. We project and present the movies and, after that, a Q&A session is held with our guests and the public.

This year (2023) the spotlight will be on productions made and produced by Moldavian filmmakers.

SFR (Serile Filmului Românesc) este un festival inițiat în 2010, la inițiativa Asociației Studenților Jurnaliști din Iași. Din 2018, festivalul SFR este organizat de Asociația ARTIS.

Ediția din 2022, cu numărul 13: Cinci zile, peste 8.000 de spectatori, peste 60 de invitați, 40 de evenimente, opt spații de proiecție

Festivalul are un profil unic și reușește, de-a lungul anilor, să transforme capitala Moldovei într-un pol al cinematografiei românești. În cadrul Secțiunilor festivalului, în fiecare an sunt prezentate filme din diferite perioade ale cinematografiei românești, precum și filmele noi, filme de debut sau scurtmetraje. Conceptul festivalului implică difuzarea producțiilor românești, cu invitarea actorilor, regizorilor, a scenariștilor și a criticilor de film în cadrul proiecției. Dialogul și întâlnirea cu publicul înseamnă o deschidere a cinematografiei.

SFR is judged by film specialists from Romania : filmmakers, journalists, photographers and writers.
