The Rape: Anne, Corinne, Annie, Brigitte, Josyane, Monique, and the others...
Violul: Anne, Corinne, Annie, Brigitte, Josyane, Monique și celelalte..
"Rape is the action that encompasses all the hatred and the contempt against women. The war exists and we have not declared it. It is up to us now to defend ourselves and to respond." (Annie Cohen).
Two young teenagers, Corinne and Anne, are talking about Anne’s rape testimony during a famous French TV broadcast "les dossiers de l’écran" - where she was accompanied by her lawyer Gisčle Halimi - we see extracts of this 1978 show. As usual when it comes to women, her rape and its (traumatized) consequences are minimized by the men on the set and Anne is presented through their judgemental gaze. Anne and Corinne are also part of a collective of women reflecting (and acting concretely) on the violence perpetrated on them by the society (mainly by men), on the everyday assaults they are suffering in the streets (only by men), on rape (by unknown people or by "lovers"), on justice, repression as well as the roots of their own alienation. This film is a rare opportunity we are given to accompany all these women while they are building a complex, nuanced and liberating reflexion. (by Vanina Vignal)

Accesul la avorturi sigure pentru femeile din România, un drept doar pe hârtie
In 2021, for many countries around the world, women’s bodies are still a battlefield – they are not given access to contraception methods, abortion is banned, and there is no sex education, nor campaigns meant to inform them about their sexual and reproductive rights. Romania is one of those countries. In the last 10 years, women and teenagers didn’t have access to free contraception anymore, and many of the family planning clinics have closed. The access to abortion is not prohibited, nor is it easy to come by, for that matter: during the state of emergency (March 15 – May 15, 2020), only 11 hospitals in the country still performed terminations of pregnancy, none of which in Bucharest (the FILIA Center, 2020.)In 2021 the FILIA Center resumed research concerning the access to safe, on request terminations of pregnancy, and the complete report on the 2020 situation will be published in June. Part of the data obtained by FILIA will be made public at the festival. We already know, from the data obtained at the end of last year, that some Romanian women performed abortions at home, in improper conditions and without medical supervision, due to not having access to this procedure. During the time of the decree which banned abortion, at least 10 000 women have died, and over 100 000 suffered mutilations after having tried to perform an abortion at home, helped by partners, friends, or doctors who risked jail for the help they were offering. Our recent history clearly shows us that we cannot follow the example of Poland or Malta and to force women to become mothers: women’s lives and girl’s lives matter.

Feminismul intersecțional în lumea gadjeilor
The colour of one’s skin, one’s ethnicity, sexual identity, or social status define and redefine identities, they group and split women in various spaces: those of gadjos, Roma people, the LGBT community, poor people etc. What do the experiences of queer women and Roma women about the ”worlds” they navigate and with which they intersect tell us? Why do we need to incorporate the experiences of women who deal with multiple forms of discrimination and stigmatization? Do we need activism and intersectional feminism? How do we include more diversity, equality, and social justice in various movements?
These are some of the questions which our guests will try to answer by telling us about how the world looks like through their eyes as women, queer women, Roma women.Guests: Antonella Lerca Duda, Tabita Ene, Elena Feraru, Nicoleta Vișan, Anca Nică.

Performance. Hei, tu, vecine!
Hi, hello, greetings!
Who are we?
We are the Educational Centre of the PerformativeArts CEVA, CEVA from community, education, what lies ahead and art. WE are some teenagers from Târgu Neamț and its surroundings. There’s also Colea, our colleague from the Moldavian Republic. Our town resides at the foot of the Neamț’s Citadel,with Ozana here, really close. Târgu Neamț is a town full of stories that we want to tell.
WE talk about our community and about what interests us, topics which appear in all teenage conversations. WE want to make a change with our something, discover as much as we can, feel good with ourselves and those around us.
About our performance
“You know that if it was meant to be,
It wouldn’t have been a song”
Isn’t it so? If it were to have been, it wouldn’t have been as it is now. To be more precise, we are referring, firstly, to all that happens around us and today’s problems: people who judge excessively, bullying, racism, the loss of humanity, the chase after money, after the perfect job, gossip at every corner, and so on. So, if all of these hadn’t been and we would have lived in a perfect pink background world, we wouldn’t have asked ourselves millions of questions and we wouldn’t have had this wish to change something. We believe that, in the end, society’s imperfection brought something good among us as well.
Sometimes our curiosity cracks.
It’s exhausting to keep wondering where you’ll be, what you will be and how… Along our long discussions filled with endless sentences about the past,present and future, we planned out a... Futuristic performance, in which we voice our concerns, but not by crying and whimpering, but more so enjoying ourselves. It’s something with #hip hip hooray. And be warned! this isn't only about teenagers, it’s about all those who have questions.
we will ask ourselves once more,

Despre egalitatea de gen în industria de film și teatru
We propose a discussion where we reflect upon the practices that are meant to improve the gender balance and representation in the film and theatre industry – from taking concrete steps in education (both formal and informal) to fostering gender equality across such areas as festival curation, the production chain, film and theatre criticism, decision-making and more. We invite our panel guests to consider how the local industry could become more inclusive, accessible and safer from a gender perspective; how we can empower the voices of marginalised groups and raise awareness among film and theatre practitioners, stakeholders, as well as the audience.
Guests: Alexandra Diaconu, Katia Pascariu, Lucia Chicoș, Mihaela Michailov, Raluca Durbacă.
The discussion will be moderated by Ioana Diaconu and Georgiana Vrăjitoru (F-Sides)
