Romanian Film Festival of Chicago – 3rd Edition

Romanian Cultural Exchange (ROCX) is hosting the 3rd Romanian Film Festival in Chicago, scheduled for May 27-29, 2011 at the Skokie Theatre. This event draws the highest population of people with Romanian heritage in the Mid-West, and hundreds of film lovers. The Romanian Community in Chicago alone accounts for over 100,000 people. The event will include an opening cocktail party to honor lead Romanian film industry players and our elite sponsors.

As the L.A. Times quotes, “Romanians can’t make a bad film. It’s like, illegal in their country.” We invite you to join the Romanian community, and foreign film enthusiasts alike in discovering the cinematic phenomenon that left a fierce impression on film festivals all over the world. Help ROCX make that impact in Chicago.
