COVID-19 Response: Learn how the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies is working under the current operational posture at


November 11 - 27, 2022

The University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies is proud to sponsor the 9th edition of the Romanian Film Festival in Seattle: “HOMELANDS”  (online: November 11-27, 2022) hosted by the American Romanian Cultural Society and the Northwest Film Forum.

As part of our partnership with this film festival, the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies offers a limited number of free tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis, primarily but not exclusively to University of Pittsburgh faculty, students, and staff. 

The 9th edition of the festival reflects on this year’s current events in Eastern Europe, while celebrating the power of film to map out new meanings into a world where people have been displaced by wars, economic crises, political instability, and natural disasters. The internationally acclaimed movies featured from the region in the carefully curated selection, covering all forms and genres, will redefine our sense of homelands and belonging, in relation to our families, neighbors, countries of origin, and, by extension, to our planet itself. As Daniel Ursache’s poster illustrates, movies remain, year after year, our main path and answer, when everything else seems out of place. 



Please fill out this survey by November 7 indicating which films you are interested in seeing; requests are limited to five (5) films per person. Sent to your email address by November 9, your free tickets will provide you with access to the films in which you expressed interest. Due to the limited availability, please request tickets only for the films you are committed to viewing.

All film programs listed in this survey will be available for viewing online starting November 11 through November 27 and are available to view ONLY in the U.S. Films can be watched when it is most convenient for you during the period of the festival. You have 48 hours to finish watching a film after you start playing it.
