About us

Films in Frame is an online Romanian film magazine which presents both the local and international industry through carefully crafted materials written by our editors and collaborators. We write about what we think it’s relevant, about young and emerging talents undiscovered yet and about everything we believe it’s important to get to our readers.

Our features are organized into categories: film reviews, interviews, special features (#behindthescreen, #intothespotlight, #filmsoftheweekend, Emerging Voices and Top of the Month) and festival features (Festival Focus).

The aim of our work ist o bring our readers closer to Romanian and European cinema and to help them experience a bit of the magical world behind the screen. And we do it in two languages (RO-ENG) so it reaches everyone.
