The European Day of the Languages
Each year since 2001, we celebrate on September 26, at the joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, the European Day of Languages. EDL brings together citizens across Europe under the banner of linguistic diversity and richness. In 2020, we focused on the importance of translation into a world of globalization and freedom of movement. One radio quiz and one online quiz took participants on a #DiscoverTranslation exploration through 10 languages: German, English, Spanish, French, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Portuguese, Turkish and Romanian.

CINEMASCOP Film Festival
Cinemascop is a multi-layered intercultural project shaped as a festival, which takes place in the open air summer cinema in Eforie Sud, between August 1-7. In the context where cultural and educational activities were practically non-existent until the festival’s launch in 2018, Cinemascop has become, for locals and tourists coming from all over the country, a new way to spend their free time at the seaside, offering them the possibility to gather together in a space that got back its initial purpose – film screenings. In addition, the project aims to draw attention to these endangered spaces (summer cinemas and theaters, cinemas), which have been abandoned and forgotten by the authorities, but, perhaps, not forgotten by the public who wants to have access to them. Another target that the project aims at and has managed to achieve with the first two editions is related to the activation and involvement of the local community, eager to give a hand and help carry on the activities that bring them cultural, educational, but also touristic benefits, in the case of this location. Cinemascop is an example of good practices, serving as model and inspiration for similar projects, much needed in the Romanian society.

JAZZUNIQUE is a jazz festival organized in collaboration with Green Hours, from 2021, held at the end of June, beginning of July. Of all the languages in the world, the language of music is perhaps the easiest to understand to transmit, and it has no borders. In a world full of “certified copies”,JAZZUNIQUE wants to bring a touch of decadent elitism in the spotlight. And if the fascinating “roaring 20s” taught us something, it’s that jazz goes perfectly with champagne.
