From Romanian director Alex Rotaru, comes the delightful story of an amateur piano contest for people over the age of 30 hosted by the Van Cliburn Foundation. “They Came to Play” took home awards for Best Documentary from both the Bucharest and the SENE film festivals and has been met with rave reviews!
We were fortunate enough to produce and edit the trailer for this film, design the collateral materials and build the website.
