Cinepub is dedicated to all film lovers. It is a project that aims to bring to the audiences not only films of well known directors, but also independent productions made by those with a real passion for film but at the beginning of their careers.
We are trying to bring Romanian films closer to the audiences with the help of these stories told through images. A film is meant to touch us in a way, no matter if we hate it or love it, to challenge or inspire us. Thus, Cinepub connects us with different stories in life. Day by day.
