October Cluj Festivals

Cluj-Napoca is one of the leading cultural centres of Romania. The range of festivals is broad, powerful, diverse and attractive for town's own occupants, Romanian visitors and foreign visitors alike.

This October, Cluj can present itself as Cluj Festival City as three important festivals will take place here:

Cluj Musical Autumn
Almost a month full of exciting, musical and artistic encounters at Students' Cultural House, Music Academy "Gh. Dima", National Art Museum and churches.

Come along on 19th October, from 7PM, at Music Academy "Gh.Dima", to listen the magnificent Romanian Piano Trio playing Ravel and Dvorak and the next day, on 20th, at Students' Cultural House to enjoy the 12 cellos of Napocelli.


The closing concert will be among the highlights of the festival as Daniel Goiti, an amazing classical piano player and teacher from our town, will perform Beethoven and the orchestra will play undoubtedly the most buoyant and colorful of the four legends of Sibeliu's suite, Lemminkäinen's Return.

Comedy Cluj
The film festival focuses on films in which the Comic rules.
By identifying new talent, as well as trends and themes, the festival is for both genre fans as well as the more general film lovers. Artistic tour de force or popcorn film, low budget, all is welcome at Comedy Cluj. The festival is also a place where visitors and guests can meet each other in an informal atmosphere.

If you like Jim Carrey you must see I love you, Philip Morris. You may also loudly laugh at Bal-can-can  and Hokkabaz, Muzika, The Boat That Rocked and Secretul lui Nemesis.

Temps d'Images
The 3rd edition of Temps d'Images is of exciting, musical, dance, video, theater and artistic encounters in the old Paint Brush Factory or at Tranzit House, Tailors' Tower, National Theatre of Cluj, Hungarian Theatre of Cluj. Again, we'll be surprised by the special combination of different music and visual arts, by the crossover of different styles of dance and other art forms, all with two common denominators: high artistic quality and an international dimension.

"...when the desire vanishes only reality remains...", this is an invitation to go and see Vava Stefanescu in "Solo Tu", at Tranzit House, on 13th October, from 8 PM.
