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 emerging talents and established filmmakers, films we love (or not), about film festivals and everything else we believe it’s important to get to our readers. We are a couple of young and passionate journalists and we like to believe we write with honesty.

Our features are organised into categories: news, film reviews, interviews, editorials, film recommendations and festival features (Festival Focus), trailers, and video series.

The aim of our work is to bring our readers closer to Romanian and European cinema and guide their experience into the magical world behind the screen. We do it in two languages (RO-ENG), so it reaches everyone.
