A new cinema culture. TIFF nearing the start line

The generic of the new TIFF edition – ‘Film as religion’ – and the spot or visuals inspired by the typology of the ‘film addict’ succumbing to an overdose, insists on this comparison which, to the most pious of us, may sound like a blasphemy, and for the free-thinkers unconvincing, the stake is quite real. In a world of the screen-image in the epoch where art comes out of museums into the street, for a concreteness of the spectacle, in full expansion of the multimedia universe, the cinema discovers its potential even in marginal Romania. The TIFF organizers have intuited that the future identity of the festival depends on the emphasis it places on cinematographic education, be it implicit or explicit. The ambition challenge is to become the ferment of a school of cinematographic culture. The interest is not to develop the love for cinema, but to enlarge the group of people engaged in the cinematographic art and industry. The novelties of the 11th edition of TIFF are: a new training programme, ‘Transylvania Talent Lab’ (schooling 16 trainees), divided into three sections: script writing, production and distribution; the association of the Art Museum with a programme of exhibitions and concerts – TIFFArt; a focus on the Danish, Chinese and Australian cinemas; a new section dedicated to religious matters – ‘Oameni si zei’(Gods and Men); a Stanley Kubrick integral; a new identity space of the festival, the TIFF House, which is an Old City building that was especially renovated for the festival; the live accompaniment of Carl Th. Dreyer’s 1932 ‘Vampyr’ film by Steven Severin, founder of the Siouxsie and the Banshees band; three 1920s American avant-garde short films with live accompaniment by Eiunuiea. Some of the guest starts this year are: actresses Geraldine Chaplin and Mari Torocsik (a living classic of Hungarian cinema and theatre), directors Claude Lelouche and Pen-Ek Ratanaruang (Thailand), producers Christine Vachon, the founder of the Killer Films production house, Jan Harlan, the executive producer of some of Kubrick’s films (one of the celebrated artists this edition), Roberto Olla, director of Eurimages.
