2016 will be a year rich in Romanian films.



A film directed by Marian Crișan, is scheduled to premiere on February 12. The film, based on Ioan Slavici’s novel “The Lucky Mill”, appears to be an adaptation of Romania today. It is the story of a couple, Lucian (András Hatházi) and Andra (Rodica Lazăr), who run a chalet in the Apuseni Mountains. Things get out of hand when suddenly Zoli (Bogdan Zsolt), a head of the illegal logging mafia, suddenly comes to the fore, but he controls the whole area, including the lodge.



After 2014’s #Selfie, director Cristina Iacob returns with #Selfie69, to be released on 13 May 2016. If the first part of the adventure was focused on the escapade of three friends before the baccalaureate, this time, Roxi, Yasmine and Ana have a different stake: Who gets married first in just three days?
