As announced by the Ministry of Culture and National Patrimony on 23 March 2010 the Minister has appointed the seven members of the Board of Administration of the Centrul Naţional al Cinematografiei (National Cinematography Centre - CNC). The mandate of the new Board is for two years.

The members are: the general director of CNC, a representative of the Ministry of Culture and National Patrimony, a representative of the Union of Authors and Filmmakers of Romania, a representative of the Cineasts Union of Romania, a representative of the Union of Film Producers, a representative of the Cineasts Association of Romania and a representative of the Association of Romanian Film Promotion.

The professional cinematography associations did not succeed in designating the requisite five members themselves and proposed a list of 19 persons to the Ministry of Culture and National Patrimony. The Minister then took the decision to appoint the five members of the CNC’s Board of Administration representing the filmmakers’ associations himself on the basis of the proposals he received.

Every year the CNC organises contests for subsidies for film projects (see IRIS 2010-2:1). Filmmakers, especially directors of the new generation, criticise the way the members of the juries mark the projects at their own will without being obliged to give reasons for their decisions.
