The Bucharest Residence
Bucharest is a booming city with many large infrastructure projects changing the old face of the city.
Known in the past as “The Little Paris,” Bucharest has changed a lot lately, and today it has become a very interesting mix of old and new that has little to do with its initial reputation. Finding a 300-year-old church, a steel-and-glass office building and Communist-era apartment blocks next to one another is a common sight. Bucharest offers some excellent attractions, and has, in recent years, cultivated a sophisticated, trendy, and modern sensibility that many have come to expect from a European capital.
During their stay, residents will have the opportunity to exchange with local film professionals while being mentored by international professionals.
The Bucharest residence is hosted by Ada Solomon.
