Transilvania International Film Festival is run by Romanian Film Promotion. Founded in 2002, it was the country’s first international feature film festival. The 2007 edition was the first to happen simultaneously in Cluj-Napoca and Sibiu, and in 2014 there were almost 400 screenings, attracting over 62,000 spectators in 10 days. The festival is well known not only for the outstanding films it screens, but also for the great atmosphere and range of events, from seminars to night-long parties.
The Cabaret of Curiosities is a cornerstone of the cultural programme of Le Phénix, the arts foundation of Valenciennes. In the 16th and 17th centuries cabinets of curiosities became popular ways to gather and display new and intriguing objects. Inspired by these, the festival, held annually in March, presents a programme of both new and established artists from the performing arts, visual arts and literature gathered around a contemporary theme or social issue for performances and debates.
Noc Kultury – “Night of Culture” – inspires Lublin’s residents and visitors to discover the city atmosphere by reviving the streets and forgotten places with the display of artworks. Simultaneously, it offers free entrance to museums, theatres and galleries, and encourages everyone to participate in culture and share the city’s energy. Unusual things happen during this single night in June. Artists and citizens create a unique street spectacle that next morning will be just a memory.
