Curious about how the turmoil and uncertainty is affecting Europe but tired of clichéd newsreels. Then the 22nd edition of this popular annual film fest gives you cinematic glimpses of this vast continent.
From 11 to 20 May, GV VivoCity plays host to 23 feature length films spanning various genres like drama, thriller, comedy and documentary in one of its largest line-up in its vibrant history.
As H.E. Marc Ungeheuer, Ambassador and Head of the EU Delegation to Singapore reiterates, “The selection of films this year contemplates the nature of change, and is very significant now as Europe is at a time of change.”
He adds, “Economies and societies are changing, and you’ll find the powerful stories and characters in these films negotiating changes in a way that will touch your heart, make you laugh or keep you at the edge of your seat.”
