   The Romanian Cultural Institute supports again the presence of the Romanian filmmakers at the Berlin International Film Festival. Last year Illegitimate / Ilegitim by Adrian Sitaru had its world premiere there and won the C.I.C.A.E.award in the Forum section. This year we have a film in the official competitionAna, mon amour, directed by Călin Peter Netzer and the people are looking forward to watching it, after Călin won the Golden Bear with Child`s Pose / Poziția copilului in 2013.
