WPTWTS listed in top 100 most anticipated films in Cannes

“We Put the World to Sleep” has been listed #52 in top 100 most anticipated films of the year that should be seen at the Cannes Film Festival: https://bit.ly/3bllosc

This respected French publication gives Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (Directors’ Fortnight) as a potential section for my film. As some of you may know, Cannes this year didn’t happen because of the pandemic. I’ll have the movie ready in time to submit it to the next edition and fingers crossed, hoping to be selected.

The movie has also been listed in the official catalogue of upcoming Romanian films at page 45: CNC.gov.ro/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/RomanianFilms_19_20_v.pdf

The catalogue was presented at the Berlin European Film Market & should go to Cannes & other festivals once they resume activity after the pandemic. It was put together by Ştefan Dobroiu for Romanian Film Promotion with the support of the Romanian Film Centre & the Romanian Filmmakers Union.

Erisse Peterson is missing from the cast because she was not part of it when the catalogue was made. Happy to announce that she rejoined the project recently and you’ll see her in the movie in a very interesting & unexpected way!

I you would like to support my work on this film and on the entire trilogy, you can always do it on https://www.patreon.com/AdrianTofei

As some of you may already know, I work with no script, a lot of improvisation, living in character, building the story in the editing process, therefore it’s impossible to get support from big investors and production companies. I mainly rely on you, the people who appreciate my films and trust my method.

Don’t be ashamed to contribute the minimum amount of $1 a month if you wanna help, but can’t afford more, most creators on Patreon make thousands of dollars a month from $1 contributors, which allows them to keep creating. 🙂

By supporting my filmmaking work on Patreon.com/AdrianTofei you also get exclusive updates & behind-the-scenes, private links to watch my movies before release & contribute to the final versions with your feedback, IMDb official credits and invitations to attend the premieres.


Stay safe,
