Thessaloniki International Film Festival reveals Balkan Survey programme
Romanian director Mircea Daneliuc

Celebrating its 22nd year as a standalone section, the Balkan Survey programme will once again feature the latest from the Thessaloniki International Film Festival's (6-15 November) immediate vicinity, while at the same time turning its spotlight on the work of Mircea Daneliuc, a largely unacknowledged Romanian filmmaker who is, within his borders, considered as one of the country’s most important artists.

Eight features and one short selected by section curator Dimitri Kerkinos, and spanning from Daneliuc's 1975 debut with The Ride to his 1995 film The Snails’ Senator, will highlight the director's light touch and keen eye for social commentary and political satire. Daneliuc will be in Thessaloniki to introduce his films to the festival's audience.
