microFILM - Romania

Helmed by a collective of producers (Ada Solomon, Carla Fotea, Diana Caravia and Alexandru Solomon), microFILM is a Romanian production company created to develop and produce socially relevant films which constantly challenge the cinematic language. Our aim is to nurture fresh talent and help acclaimed directors break new boundaries. We are united by the belief that films should ask questions that are not always comfortable and show perspectives that are not always visible.
