This chapter surveys recent trends in Romanian cinema. Topics covered include the success of Castel Film Romania, a vast complex featuring one of the largest sound studios in Europe as well as films dealing with Romanian social and ethnographic issues. It further argues that despite international recognition and its effectively used production facilities, Romanian cinema still fares poorly at home. Audiences inevitably prefer US box-office hits to national products and cinema attendance rates have not progressed as expected; neither have the viewing conditions been radically improved beyond the already operational mall multiplexes in the outskirts of big cities. However, film schools, European training workshops, and festivals are flourishing all over the country, and the Romanian CNC is constantly trying to improve its selection and financing criteria.
