Cosmin Gurău is a Romanian filmmaker. Right now, his goal is to properly carry out his newest endeavor called “To The Wild”, which is a non-commercial independent film festival. The main point of this event is to combine two things that he loves intensely, namely nature and films, into one. Behind “To The Wild”, there are just a few people trying to find out if there is another way to go about this “film festival thing”, or if indeed the distracting, unpleasant experiences caused by intrusive commercial elements have to be part and parcel of the festivalgoer’s life. The first edition of this festival will take place on the 25th of August, in Bucharest. In an interview for redteastories.com he talks about his passions, and the art of making movies. Find out more:
