THE European Film Festival is back for the fourth time at Cinema Nouveau theatres in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Durban from 5 to 14 May. Acknowledged by the Rotterdam International Film Festival, this movie is a road trip with a modification, at once thoughtful, hilarious and wild. The line-up of films represents 12 countries, including Ireland and Croatia for the first time. Each film reflects the skills and take on the world of filmmakers who are not limited by national borders.
This year’s selection is a mixed pot in terms of film themes, which span from animal rights to family dynamics. Dramas and documentaries, comedies, tales of grief and a children’s adventure sit side by side on this eclectic and exciting programme. “The films are new, but the commitment remains the same: to offer audiences in South Africa an opportunity to experience acclaimed and award-winning European cinema,” adds Hedrén.
