The film was released on September 16th
and surpassed during this period all the Hollywood productions present on the big screens in Romania. It is the best week of a Romania film in cinemas of the latest 15 years.
After its first weekend in theatres (16 – 18 septembrie), #selfie69
was viewed by over 25,000 viewers.
“When we started on the #selfie
adventure, I didn't think we'll get here. For me, every person coming to a theatre to see a Romanian film is a bet won with myself, with my wonderful
jog,” Olimpia Melinte
said. “The reason I chose acting was to reach people through my work, to make them identify with my characters, and is a pleasant feeling to see that our story really reaches them. We thank you for believing in us, this time the tables were turned and you made us smile!”, Olimpia continued.
“Wow! It's wonderful that #selfie69
is so well liked! I am glad that so many people saw the movie,” Vlad Logigan said. “People are having fun at our film, they laugh, they clap their hands. #selfie69
has a very generous dose of well-made action, and the large numbers of viewers prove it is a good film, different from what they have seen in Romania until now. Come to cinema to see #selfie69
!”, Vlad added.
