Richard Linklater's Hit Man will open the 2024 American Independent Film Festival

The American Independent Film Festival (AIFF) returns for the 8th edition with the latest and most appreciated independent productions made in the USA, which will be able to be seen between June 7 and 13 in Bucharest and, for the first time ever, in the magical setting of Bran Castle, on June 7 and 8.

For the first time in the history of the festival and Bran Castle, AIFF 8 organizes special screenings on June 7 and 8, in the castle courtyard.
The proposal of AIFF 8 is to reconnect the Romanian public, but also potential foreign tourists, with the beauty of the open-air cinema, accentuated by the unique setting and the breathtaking atmosphere of one of the most beautiful places in Romania.

"AIFF 8 continues its mission to offer the Romanian public films that are more than just entertainment, to mediate the dialogue of the public with the filmmakers, to cultivate the experience of watching cinema films as a social event, in the middle of the community and to use the cinema as an opportunity to connect and communicate with others, including by popularizing some social causes to which the festival donates, as every year, the proceeds from ticket sales.", says Cristian Mungiu, director of AIFF.

The Prorom title Hit Man (directed by Richard Linklater) will open the festival, on Friday, June 07, both at Cinema Elvire Popesco in Bucharest and outdoors, in the courtyard of Bran Castle.

Richard Linklater, one of the most important contemporary American directors is known to the public, among others, for the series Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013) and for the ambitious film project Boyhood (2014) filmed throughout 12 years.

Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater's sunlit neo-noir stars Glen Powell as strait-laced professor Gary Johnson, who moonlights as a fake hit man for the New Orleans Police Department.

Preternaturally gifted at inhabiting different guises and personalities to catch hapless people hoping to bump off their enemies, Gary descends into morally dubious territory when he finds himself attracted to one of those potential criminals, a beautiful young woman named Madison (Adria Arjona).

As Madison falls for one of Gary's hit man personas -- the mysteriously sexy Ron -- their steamy affair sets off a chain reaction of play acting, deception, and escalating stakes.

Co-written by Linklater and Powell and inspired by an incredible true story, Hit Man is a smart existential comedy about identity that premiered at Venice and was selected at Sundance.

Hit Man is distributed by Prorom in Eastern Europe.
