This post it's about what i like the most! FESTIVALS!!!! Doesn't matter if it's a Theater, or a Film, or Medieval, or one like Peninsula... These Festivals are the shit!!!
Why? Cuz...That atmosphere where you have the chance to watch some movies before they are released or some international plays(which you don't have the chance to see them if it wasn't for the Festival) the real stars that you can see on the big screen (not in the tabloids) or the passioned actors that are playing all these plays, is really cool. I would like to be an actress or a singer just for participating at these Festivals, where i can meet people like me -culturally sensitive- from all over the world and to feel the unique emotions up on the stage. That emotions are more than unique... I used to be an "actress" for 2 years...high school period. Lovely period... :D
And now some memories from the Festivals that i attended...
- FITS(Festivalul International de Teatru de la Sibiu aka The International Theater Festival from Sibiu)...It's the third Theater Festival as importance from Europe.It is where i got the chance to be a volunteer for the first time...back in 2006. We were 3 girls, who were the guide for a Theater group from Poland(Theatr A). But the coolest thing was the Club Festival. Every year during the FITS, late in the night, when all the plays are ending everyone who participates at this Festival (actors, volunteers, technicians, organnisators and so on) are gathering up in the inner yard from the Radu Stanca National Theater. There you can drink beer, taste "the mici", sit and talk and... DANCE. There it doesn't matter if you are just a 16, 17 or 18 volunteer, or an actor with a lot of prizes, a Romanian or a Japanese, a Jewish or a Catholic. It's the perfect place where you can spend some time in a warm night of May. I'm really sorry that the 2007 edition for FITS i kind of missed it out, cuz of the BAC. But i'm really happy that i didn't missed the Club Festival in 2008 where we danced Zorba in the rain (if at The New Year's Eve i danced Zorba in the middle of the street, where the fluffy snow had 10 centimeters, in May i danced Zorba in the rain... IT WAS GREAT!!! just TRY it!).
- ANONIMUL. Independent Film Festival. Danube Delta, Sfantul Gheorghe, August 2007. It was an amazing experience attending to this festival. The location is more than perfect. Everyone heard about the unique landscapes from the Danube Delta, actually if you see those landscapes and explore them you figure out you want to take that picture with you everywhere you go, like the sea picture...:) The wish to come back there is invading your soul as soon as you get there. We (me and my sister) were supposed to go there with some friends from Brasov, but on the way to paradise we met some really cool "bucuresteni"
, because it is a long way, not everyone is going there, only nice young people, mainly from Transylvania :D. I can write a novel about 5 days spent there. The festival it is like this: if you don't want to go to the smoothest beach in the middle of the day you can watch some movies at the cinema. If you want to go to the beach and swim in the Black Sea you can watch all the movies all night long outside on a huge screen. California Dreamin` (endless) was the winner of the ANONIMUL Trophy Fifth Edition, August 2007. I was soooo happy, cuz it's an awesome movie.
- TIFF(Transylvania International Film Festival).Festival. Film Festival. The 2008 Edition i got the chance to see it right from Cluj-Napoca and the theme was the
007 Bond.James Bond. known also in the 'mioritic' space as "Junior.Piersic Junior":) and other 6 actors because it was the 7th edition. I'm sorry i wasn't a volunteer, to be more involved in this festival. Last year i saw 432 and California Dreamin` before they were released in cinemas in Sibiu, the edition from Sibiu. In 2008 Crossing Dates aka Intalniri Incrucisate was the movie that impressed me the most.
