From August 23 to 25, 2019, Salonta will host the first edition of the Frontier Film Festival. Every evening, the audience will have the chance to attend open-airs screenings of a selection of Romanian
and Magyar films that were released these past few years. The festival is dedicated to the large audience and it will be a good chance to discover the two film worlds and to communicate. Every evening there will be special guests – directors, actors or producers of the films – who will discuss with the viewers after the screening.
Among the films selected for the first edition, the viewers will see Parking
, directed by Tudor Giurgiu, represented by the co-writer of the film, the writer Marin Malaicu Hondrari and X-Out of the System / X – Scos din Sistem
, directed by Károly Ujj Mészáros, introduced by the producer András Muhi. The festival takes place from August 23 to 25, starting with 19:30, at Turnul Ciunt in Salonta (Bihor). The access is free.
