Andrei Creţulescu

Romania

Somebody once said that the best way to write a film review is to make a film. I became a film critic because I loved watching, analyzing and understanding film. In a sense, when I'm directing, I'm doing the same thing.

Born in 1974 in Romania, Andrei Cretulescu is a former film critic and creative producer for HBO Romania. After launching Kinosseur Productions in 2011, he directed several short films including KOWALSKI (2014), a 17-minute short film with continuous dialogue and a zero camera movement, shot in one take, and RAMONA (2015), which won the Canal+ award in Cannes, a Gothic, choreographic, seventies-inspired genre film without dialogue, led by an explosive blond heroine. His first feature film, CHARLESTON (2017), premiered in Locarno’s Main Competition and was presented in many other film festivals.
