The Festival Pens are nice, ergonomic and they write in black ink. They also sport a beautiful logo on a side. It’s an absolute pleasure to write with them, really. I might just start a diary so I can use them for other tasks than jotting down names and phone numbers, or checking guest lists and flight schedules.
Then there is the Festival Bag, a marvel of portable technology that is ecological and easy to wear. Not to mention it is also hip – as can be seen in picture. I imagine fashionistas would love to get their hands on one of them. But no – they are for our lovely audience.
Changing the subject – this evening I had the pleasure to see the extraordinary film director Andrei Konchalovsky, at a special screening of his film Gloss in the EBRD Auditorium, in the heart of the City.
This will be the precise place where we’ll host actor extraordinaire Victor Rebengiuc on Monday 26 November for a screening of Medal of Honour. It will be so exciting to meet this extraordinary man again, and to be able to rub shoulders with one of the best-known and loved Romanian actors. In a career spanning more than 50 years, Victor Rebengiuc has worked with all the greats of Romanian cinematography - such as Liviu Ciulei, Lucian Pintilie or Dan Pita - while also working for younger directors such as Cristi Puiu, Radu Muntean, Lucian Georgescu, or Calin Peter Netzer.
