Every year in the first week of May, in Los Angeles, California, the South East European Film Festival (SEEfest) pioneers the concept of regional, cross-border programming with issue-driven films about the Balkans and South East Europe. 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the festival, unveiling a robust program of feature films and documentaries, along with animation and documentary shorts. 

The Japanese Dog by Tudor Cristian Jurgiu

This year the festival will place the spotlight on the rich cinema of Romania, and to celebrate its milestone year, will present its first ever Lifetime Achievement and Legacy Awards to legendary Romanian actor Victor Rebengiuc and Oscar-winning actor George Chakiris. 

"SEEfest salutes Romanian cinema for everything it has given to the world in the last 15 years, pioneering a fresh new style of moviemaking, while making a splash on the international scene," comments Vera Mijojlić, founder and director of SEEfest. "Romanian filmmakers put the region ΄on the map΄ with groundbreaking movies and gave voice to people in a way that has not been seen since the 1960’s Czech new wave and Yugoslav ΄black film΄." 

The program is comprised of the following competition sections: Feature Films, Documentary Films, Short Fiction and Short Documentary Films, and the Short Animation section. The awards the festival grants are the Best Feature Film Award, the Best Documentary Film Award (two awards: feature and short), the Best First Feature Film Award, the Best Short Film Award, that of the Best Cinematography and the Audience Award. Lets have a look at the Balkan titles presented:
