Chef Adi Hădean comes to Transilvania International Film Festival 2022 for a special day: Ukrainian Street Food Day. He will prepare, together with Ukrainian chefs, traditional dishes from the neighbouring country, which people from Cluj are invited to try on June 20 at a special event on Potaissa Street in the city centre. All funds raised from the event will be donated to the #SolidarSocial initiative which delivers hot meals to refugees.

For Ukrainian Street Food Day, TIFF and Adi Hădean are launching a call to Ukrainians in Cluj-Napoca, professional or amateur chefs, who are invited to join the event to cook traditional food together. Those interested are invited to write a message to

I was very happy to receive the invitation from TIFF, because it aligns with the project we started through #SolidarSocial with the help of which we have so far donated over 100,000 hot meals to refugees at the border. I invite people from Cluj to visit us on June 20, they are in for a special culinary experience. And all the money we will collect in exchange for the dishes will be redirected to the Ukrainian community”, says Adi Hădean.
