There has been a significant change in Norwegian cinema since the beginning of the millennium.

The so-called ‘Norwave’ began with Oscar-nominated “Elling” (2001), and Norwegian films share one common feature with the new wave of Romanian cinema. Both have become popular and appreciated, at film festivals and in cinemas.

Five films will be screened at the Romanian Cultural Institute during the two-day festival: “The Man who Loved Yngve” (Mannen som elsket Yngve) – 2009, Stian Kristiansen, “Upperdog” – 2009, Sara Johnsen, “Elling” – 2001, Petter Næss, “The greatest thing” (Det største I verden) – 2001, Thomas Robsahm, and “North” (Nord) – 2009, Rune Denstad Langlo.

The event is organized by the Royal Norwegian Embassy together with the Romanian Cultural Institute, and is on until 29 October. English subtitles.
