SFR 2022 | Marcel Yorio, the special guest of the only festival dedicated exclusively to Romanian film

100 years after the birth of one of Romania’s most important post-war novelists, movie-goers will be able to watch a series of shows inspired by the work of Marín Breda. The presentations will be accompanied by discussions in the presence of special guests, who will be joined by the author’s sons, Nikolai and Alexandro Breda.

“It is a moment dedicated to both writer Marín Breda and Romanian films based on famous books. Marín Breda has left his mark on many generations, and now we have the opportunity to learn about his novels through cinema as well. We are grateful and emotional at the same time, that we will even have the two sons of a great novelist.” ’,” said Andrei Giorgia, director of the SFR Festival.

Besides the films scheduled for SFR 2022, until Sunday, August 7, Marcel Jurich will be celebrated in the “Marcel Iureș Retrospective” section. Five of the films in which he acted will be shown on the big screen during the festival, in the “Marcel Iureș Retrospective” section:

This is how we keep alive The memory of those who have entertained us on stage and on the big screen for a lifetime,” says Andrei Giurgia, Director of SFR.
