28th European Union Film Festival

Spread the love

The European Union Film Festival (EUFF), Singapore’s longest running foreign film festival, is back for its 28th edition. Film buffs will be excited to know that the EUFF, is well-known for showcasing the best of contemporary European cinema, will run from May 10 to May 20, 2018. All films will be screened at the iconic National Gallery Singapore.

The 28th EUFF will be presenting over 20 films from across Europe with Austria as the featured country this year. The festival opens with Fly Away Home, a film set in 1945, Vienna where the powder keg of war and the Russian occupation is seen through the innocent eyes of nine-year old Christine.

The festival will continue EUFF’s long tradition of collaborating with a Singaporean film school. Partnering for the fourth time with Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s School of Film and Media Studies, the EUFF will present short films by students and alumni of the school alongside the official film selection.

In this landmark year, the 28th EUFF is proud to showcase the EU-SINGAPORE-ASEAN special collaboration with a presentation of the fim Fragment, an omnibus film celebrating the strength and diversity of South-East Asian independent cinema. Made up of a collage of ten stories, each story distinctively embraces the other’s subjectivities.

Other children-friendly films from this festival include The Stronghold (Ukraine), Mother Knows Best (Portugal), and Custody (France).
