Join us to see a brand new generation of talents and a spotlight on Anca Damian, one of the most compelling directors working today

New York’s longstanding Romanian film festival comes for its 12th edition to BAMcinématek from December 4-7, with an exclusive program which blends the award-winning works of a brand new generation of talents—including a Balkan Coen-esque thriller, a zany social comedy, and a quiet backwater drama—plus a spotlight on Anca Damian, one of the most compelling Romanian directors working today who has forged a singular path with her visually arresting documentary, narrative, and animation hybrids or her intellectually challenging fiction films.​​​​​​​


Find out more and purchase your tickets now, and join us for an amazing crop of films and filmmakers. Festival guests include directors Anca Damian, Adrian Sitaru, Paul Negoescu, Emanuel Parvu, and Adrian Silisteanu, actors Anghel Damian and Vytautas Kaniusonis, and producer Miruna Berescu.


A complementary program is presented by the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY from November 30-December 7. Learn more about the entire 2017 Making Waves lineup.


Leading support for the 12th edition of Making Waves is provided by The Trust for Mutual Understanding, the Filmmakers Union of Romania, and Blue Heron Foundation, along with generous contributions from our community of grassroots supporters. Film Industry Talks is supported by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund of Romania.
