Bio

Nemescu was born in Bucharest, in 1979. He graduated from the Academy for Theater and Film in 2003.His short films, "Mihai & Cristina" and "C Block Story" screened at more than 50 international film festivals and received several awards. "C Block Story" was nominated for Best Short Film Award by t he European Film Academy in 2004.

Nemescu's Marilena from P7, which he wrote and directed, entered in the 2006 Cannes competition.

Nemescu's last film was California Dreamin' (Endless), starring Armand Assante. He finished filming in July and was in post-production at the time of his death. The movie was awarded the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.

Nemescu was killed in a car crash in Bucharest that also killed Romanian-born sound engineer Andrei Toncu. Nemescu and Toncu were riding in a taxi that was struck on Eroilor Bridge by a Porsche Cayenne SUV driven by a British citizen (Ali Imran) who ran a red light. Technical expertise established that the Porsche was going 113 km/h (63 km/h above the speed limit), while the taxi had a speed of 42 km/h. The driver was initially sentenced to 7 years in prison by a Romanian court but this was later reduced to 6 years.
