BUCHAREST: Somewhere in Palilula, the debut film from Romania’s internationally acclaimed theatre director Silviu Purcărete, garnered 11 nominations for Romania’s Gopo Awards, held on 25 March 2013.

Radu Jude’s Everybody in Our Family/Toată lumea din familia noastră (www.hifilm.ro) and Gabriel Achim’s Adalbert’s Dream/Visul lui Adalbert (www.greenfilm.ro) have nine nods each. Tudor Giurgiu’s comedy Of Snails and Men/Despre oameni şi melci (www.librafilm.net) has eight nominations. All four of the top nominated films are competing for Best Film and Best Director.

Dan Chişu’s Chasing Rainbows/Şi caii sunt verzi pe pereţi (www.familyfilm.ro) has seven nominations and Lucian Georgescu’s debut feature Phantom Father/Tatăl fantomă (www.thephantomfather.com) has six.

The jury selected the nominees from 16 features, 13 documentaries and 32 short films released in cinemas or competeing in festivals in 2012.

Producer/director Cristian Mungiu refused to allow his his film Beyond the Hills/După dealuri (www.mobrafilms.ro), the most acclaimed Romanian film in 2012, to compete for the Gopos. Last year director Cristi Puiu withdrew Aurora from the nominations process, but the film was awarded Best Film and he was named Best Director. The jury included no nominations in the Best Actress category, citing a lack of choices. Romanian Film Promotion (http://romfilmpromotion.ro/), the organizer of the Gopo gala, refused support from the National Centre for Cinema (www.cncinema.abt.ro).

Some 400 film profesionals will cast votes.
