Graduated in 2008 from the National University of Drama and Film Bucharest, Adina Pintilie is a young Romanian filmmaker, often awarded in prestigious international film festivals.

At the border between fiction, documentary and visual art, her work is very particular in the new Romanian cinema landscape, standing out through a highly personal visual style, the courage to experiment in cinematic language and an uncompromising exploration of human psyche. Her medium length film DON'T GET ME WRONG (ARTE France), premiered in Locarno 2007 and presented at IDFA, won the Golden Dove Award for Best Documentary at Dok Leipzig 2007, was selected/awarded in over 50 international film festivals.

Her latest medium length film OXYGEN was premiered in the 2010 Rotterdam Tiger Awards Short Film Competition, and was nominated for the Best Short Film Award and for the Young Hope Award at the Romanian Film Industry Awards GOPO 2011.

Her latest short films: DIARY#2 won the ZONTA Award at OBERHAUSEN International Short Film Festival 2013, and SANDPIT#186 (co-director George Chiper) premiered in Locarno 2008, won the Runner Up Award at the Miami International Film Festival 2009 and a Special Mention in Trieste International Film Festival 2009.
