A unique documentary film festival in Romania and in the region, fARAD explores diverse forms of cinematic representation of reality, as well as modes of transcending formal and national boundaries, and offers documentary, hybrid, and experimental films that have been recognized in recent major international festivals.
fARAD is organized by an experienced team that includes the programmers and producers of Making Waves, the Romanian film festival in New York, and of the Transilvania International Film Festival in Cluj. It was founded in 2014 at the initiative of Corina Șuteu, the president of the festival, and of Film ETC., in partnership with the Arad Municipal Culture Center. Under the patronage of the Arad City Hall, fARAD is produced and curated by Film ETC. (Oana Radu, festival manager, Mihai Chirilov, programming consultant), under the artistic direction of Mona Nicoară, and in co-production with 111 Film (Eugen Lumezianu). fARAD Lab 2018 is organized in partnership with BRD Groupe Société Générale.
Body/Soul is the theme of the 5th edition of the fARAD Documentary Film Festival, which will take place October 3-7, 2018 at Cinema Arta in Arad, with a provocative selection of documentaries about intimacy and the need for love. Learn more in the Program page.
