Bucharest Photofest aims to be the most important photography festival in Romania, which transforms photography into a visual education tool, creating the context for debating important current socio-political and cultural-human issues.

Resistance is the perspective through which the current edition of Bucharest Photofest talks about people, values, places and, especially, about photographers and their work, about the way in which they resist in terms of creativity, values ​​and ethics or even approach business.

“Resistance is a concept; it concerns us all. It is our ability, of all, to manifest ourselves according to the set of values ​​we have learned. It is the ability to overcome social, political, cultural challenges. It is the desire to manifest ourselves culturally. That’s what we managed to do after a period of pandemic that we all had to go through. It is the success of people who aspire to live with dignity even if they are discriminated against or how they choose not to give up their universal values. Photography is the most appropriate tool by which Bucharest Photofest talks about all these things. “, Ionut Trandafirescuthe founder of Bucharest Photofest.

The opening of the festival will take place on May 1, at 18:00, at the Instituto Cervantes in Bucharest (38 Regina Elisabeta Boulevard). On this occasion, the special screening of “Bergman: A Year in a Life” (directed by Jane Magnusson) will take place, a film that was part of the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival. It is a film that explores the existential themes of the films that form the core of the influence of Bergman’s artistic heritage and also relates them to his private life. The entry is free.

The event will be attended by the Swedish Embassy, ​​HE Ambassador Therese Hyden, from the Instituto Cervantes in Bucharest, Mr. Jorge Jiménez-Zumalacárregui, from UNHCR, Mr. Pablo Zapata, UNHCR Representative in Romania, and from Bucharest Photofest, Ionut Trandafirescu.

Bucharest Photofest, now in its sixth edition, is a project that has taken on the mission of mediating public access to some of the most important, current and relevant landmarks in domestic and international photography.
