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.”
