10 for FILM is a project developed at Transilvania IFF since 2012, one that introduces each year 10 remarkable, but still undiscovered Romanian actors, to film audience and film professionals. Coming from theatres or having already some film experience, they were given a professional portfolio and a chance to impress. In a country where cultural life is concentrated in the Capital and a few important cities, the chance that performers that are not from this areas to be discovered are quite small. The main purpose of 10 for FILM is to bring this part of Romanian cultural life back into the light.
10 of the most talented Romanian stage actors are presented anually, at TIFF, to the public and to film professionals in the Romanian Days section. The platform’s aim is to promote new individuals in the Romanian cinema.
10 for FILM targets those actors who have stood out in theater, but that did not get the chance, as of yet, to become part of the Romanian Cinema, indifferent of age, whether they are at their debut or with minor roles in indigenous productions.
The actors have at their disposal brochures, photographs, films and videos made by a professional studio, they participate in workshops and meetings and they are introduced to the public, the journalists and to those that have the power to change their careers – directors, Romanian and foreign producers, casting directors and agents.
The 10 for FILM crew is proposed and selected by a group of theater and film professionals: Tudor Giurgiu (director and producer), the theater critics Iulia Popovici, Cristina Rusiecki, Oana Stoica and Cristiana Gavrilă, Domnica Cârciumaru (casting director), Răzvan Penescu (the editor of the LiterNet portal) and Ileana Cecanu (publicist, project coordinator)
