Summary/Abstract: The text offers an analysis of the newest developments in some european cinema industries, regarded until now as “peripheral”. Based on stuart Hall’s idea “of global chance”, and on the reality of integration of cinema into the global media field, the study is an attempt to examine the wide-ranging opportunities, offered by globalization to “small” european cinema cultures. European film industries go in with globalization by developing the non-national film production as the main european film model. This model offers intense collaboration between “dominant” and “marginal” european cinema industries in terms of funding, project-development, and production capacities. Therefore, cinema cultures, yet considered “small” have got the chance to exercise significant influence on present-day global cinema aesthetics. The positive effects of this collabora- tion are illustrated with the case of „the Rumanian new wave”, a term elaborated to indicate the outstand- ing artistic progress of the youngest generation of Rumanian directors. The internationally acclaimed films of Cristian Mungiu, Cristi Puiu, Radu Muntean, Titus Muntean, Corneliu Porumboiu, Calin Peter Netzer, Cristian Nemescu, and Radu Jude are analyzed in terms to define the originality of their style and to prove that, despite funding problems, these young directors are putting european cinema culture on a new course. They work in co-productions, succeeding to make use of international collaboration, transforming material restrictions into creative innovations, and tracing new artistic possibilities for the “small” cinema industries.
