Romanian movie producers work with budding film makers on Bow’s Roman Road

Budding film makers will share the secrets they learned about directing movies after learning the craft from Romanian filmmakers who came to Bow’s Roman Road.

For the past three months 20 youngsters from the Olympic host boroughs, including Tower Hamlets, have been working with the award-winning Romanian filmmakers, including director Radu Muntean scriptwriter Alexandru Baciu, and Bafta winning actress Anamaria Marinca.

It is the first time the Romanian Cultural Institute has begun a partnership aimed at developing stronger cultural links between London and Romania.

Their partnership with Four Corners centre for film and photography on Roman Road was aimed at helping youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds acquire new skills.

The group documented the creative path their workshops took as they explored the film making production process and learned about team work.
