The 3rd edition of the Romanian Film Festival of Chicago (ROFest), which usually takes place in Chicago USA, is this time around holding its first online edition. Starting December 20th and ending December 30th, 2020, ROFest Trends RFF Festival aims to promote Romanian contemporary cinematography -both feature films and short films- among the American public and, specifically, within the Romanian community of Chicago.

ROFest.Trends film festival tells East-side stories. These movies gather the “Old” and the “New” combining and colliding to create new, unique plots, genuine combinations of feelings & experiences.

Powerful yet mild, our “East-side stories” subtly and positively transform anybody ready to engage in the quest for original characters, high-quality sarcasm, and intriguing decisions.

ROFest.Trends support the Romanian cultural and artistic heritage, encouraging the enrichment of both the American and Romanian public through various creative expressions of social, historical, and cultural aspects that stem from Romanian settings. During our last editions, we hosted many film enthusiasts, as well as important members of the Romanian community from Chicago, representatives from the Consulate General of Romania in Chicago, Romanian and American professors and students from some of the most prestigious universities from Chicago, such as University of Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, Northwestern University and so on.

Our festival is organized by a handful of enthusiasts and Romanian film lovers. Any contribution will make a difference for us and our public.
