The Histories and Film Festival in Rasnov (FFIR) started in 2009. It emerged from the desire of valuing an important chapter of local and worldwide cinematography and from the necessity of bringing to public debate those topics with an impact able to overcome the daily transience. This way, an unique event for the Romanian cultural market was born!

An event during which history and historical movies give birth to thoughts and passions, provide information and create feelings, raise questions and argue possible answers. A relaxing and vivid happening, which mixes in an attractive manner the indispensable academic rigor and the compulsory sense of humor. With 8 editions behind, FFIR is already part of the cultural identity of Rasnov, leaving its footprint in the spectacular development of the city which has emerged in being one of the main Romanian cultural and touristic destinations (over 400,000 visitors each year).

Free entrance for all activities according with the maximum capacity of the venues.
