«I strongly believe in our common humanity and our quest for harmony»

    FILM O'CLOCK IFF: Festival Director Mirona Radu on the festival's 2022 form, how it has adapted in this, its second pandemic-era edition, and more.

    Film O’Clock International Festival is inspired by the idea of ​​developing and attracting a wide cross-section of audiences in order to promote empathy and an understanding for one other. It is therefore the festival’s priority to add value to the experience of watching a film through the use of Q & A sessions with the filmmakers as well as by encouraging online discussions and debates.

    With Film O’Clock 2022 coming 1 – 6 March, Modern Times Review spoke with its Director Mirona Radu for some more insight into its 2022 form, how Film O’Clock has adapted in this, its second pandemic-era edition, and more.

    Film O’Clock invites people, especially cinephiles, to connect and dialogue together at the same moment.

    The festival combines several countries within the same meridian, which sets the foundation of its mission. Explain how these countries came to be involved with Film O’Clock, and what was your original vision for the festival?
    I think the main idea behind the festival is linked to the fact I strongly believe in our common humanity and our quest for harmony. It is a challenge to build something against any borders as languages, cultural background, education, social and ethnic aspects. All the countries involved in Film O’Clock are at the first glance very different, we dare to put together places very far in terms of distances, as Lithuania and South . . .
