Festival Director: Copel Moscu
Born in 1953, Copel Moscu graduated from the National Institute of Drama and Film Bucharest in 1978, after which he worked at the Sahia Documentary Film Studio. One of the key authors of the Romanian Documentary New Wave from the '80s (together with Ovidiu Bose Paștină, Tereza Barta, Laurențiu Damian, Sabina Pop), he was a pioneer in pushing the limits of cinema language in controversial, subversive films which concealed, under daring conceptual and formal experimenting, a fierce criticism of the communist regime, many of which were banned by the establishment’s censorship. Copel Moscu created over 50 short and feature films (The Evening School, On the Ozana Shore, My Beloved School, The Bronze Age, A Day Will Come, and I Chose Freedom), as director and scriptwriter, for which he won over 25 international and national awards. Presently he teaches film directing at the National University of Theatre and Film Bucharest "I.L. Caragiale" and video art at the National University of Arts Bucharest and serves as an artistic consultant for television and cinema. In 2010, consistent with his innovative vision and commitment to education, he took the challenge to offer Romanian audiences, particularly cinema and visual arts students, the first International Experimental Film Festival in Romania.
