Exhibitions are an experience at Astra Film Festival

The Astra Film Festival public is invited to four exhibitions open in Sibiu only during the festival, in spaces full of stories, from the Astra Film headquarters in Piața Mică and the foyer of Sălii Thalia, to Promenada Mall and the Mini Dome installed in Piața Mare. Access is free, and the experience is unique, the organizers say. Details about the special programs within the 30th anniversary edition of Astra Film Festival, here: https://www.astrafilm.ro/ro/2023/program-complet/programe-speciale-2023 .
The Astra Film Festival anniversary exhibition invites the public "to travel through the history of the phenomenon, opening a time capsule", say the organizers. The audience can see unpublished archival photos, taken since the first edition of the festival in 1993 and up to the present day. Along with the photography exhibition, the exhibition also presents equipment used at the festival over time and catalogs of past editions. The exhibition can be visited throughout the duration of the festival, in the premises of Mall Promenada, et. 1 (former Cador store), until Sunday, October 22, between 11:00 and 21:00.
"Dan Perjovschi. Document. An insert in Astra Film 30" is an artistic intervention in the headquarters of Astra Film, a temporary occupation with "documents" of the space of the most important documentary film festival in the country. It is a real history in drawings, the Dan Perjovschi brand, of Romania over the last 30 years. The artist is the citizen who cares about the city, the country, the continent and the world in which he lives. "Critical and always present, commenting or reflecting on the morals and practices of contemporary society. In a world obsessed with individualism, competitiveness and profit, the artist empathizes, assists, helps, supports, participates. Put the bone. Or the shirt. Or the bag", is the description given by the organizers of the exhibition, which will be opened at the Astra Film headquarters in Piața Mare no. 11 Wednesday 18 October to Sunday 21 October between 11am and 8pm.
The "Transhumanța" exhibition includes a series of photographs belonging to the director Dumitru Budrala, which make up "a route that takes the public along the path full of symbols, challenges and beauty, traveled by shepherds". Having a mixed character - classic photography and immersive experience, the exhibition can be visited throughout the duration of the festival, in the Mini Dome in Piața Mare, between 10:00-22:00 during the week, respectively between 10:00-18:00: 00 on weekends.
The Iulian Ignat photography exhibition "Dadestar Chaveste" ("From father to son") also opened yesterday, which can be visited in the side foyer of the Thalia Hall, between 11:00-20:00 (until Saturday), respectively between 11 :00-15:00 Sunday.
