More than 40 films from around the world, which invite moviegoers to reflect on topics related to environmental protection and the preservation and capitalization on the cultural heritage of mountain regions, some of them awarded at major international festivals, will be screened in Brasov, Predeal and Rasnov, as part of the 7th edition of the Alpin Film Festival, which will take place from Tuesday to Sunday, according to Agerpres.
According to a press release of the organizers, the first event of this year’s edition will take place at Cinema One Brasov (Coresi Shopping Center) at 7 pm, where the public will be able to meet Horia Colibasanu and Marius Gane, who will share their experience in the most spectacular mountaineering performance of 2022, the Kangenjunga Expedition 2022, and watch the Italian film „Italia K 2 Italia,” made in 1955, considered to be the best in the history of films about mountains. The film was brought to Brasov thanks to a partnership between the Italian Alpine Club and the Romanian Alpine Club.
The same as in the previous editions, the Alpin Film Festival 2022 will not lack photography exhibitions, which can be seen both outdoors, on the pedestrian area in the historic centre and on the Sfatului Square („Conexiuni” – the Forum Association, an exhibition dedicated to the 150th anniversary since the first ideas related to an organized form of hiking on Romanian territory took shape – the Transylvanian Carpathian Association and the County Museum of History), as well as indoors, at the Reduta Cultural Centre („Fagaras Mountains” – Conservation Carpathia Foundation), along with book presentations.
Also, in terms of conferences, the headliner is the one that will take place on September 10, at 6:00 pm., at the Reduta Cultural Centre, themed „A Clean Mountain – Waste Management in the Mountain Area”, with guests from France to be present, who will give some examples from the Mont Blanc area in what concerns the management of wastes.
