As part of Europe Day, which we celebrate throughout May, we have organized the online European Film Festival, which will last until May 20. A total of 16 European films are available for free at https://www.festivalscope.com/page/european-film-festival-2021/ . Just visit the site, create your account and enjoy watching the selected film for free, with subtitles.
These are recent films of various genres, which were created thanks to the support of EU funds. The best recommendation are the awards these movies won at prestigious European and international festivals.
The repertoire of the online European Film Festival includes: Romanian documentary “Acasa, My Home” (Radu Ciorniciuc, 2020), Hungarian comedy “Bad Poems” (Gabor Reisz, 2018), Spanish-French drama “Fire Will Come” (Oliver Laxe, 2019), drama co-produced by Greece, France and Serbia “Her Job” (Nikos Labôt, 2018), Latvian-Belgian drama “Oleg” (Juris Kursietis, 2019), Belgian-French film “Our Struggles” (Guillaume Senez 2018), French comedy “Perfumes” (Gregory Magne 2019) and the Slovenian drama from 2018 “Consequences”, directed by Darko Štante. A special segment of the festival consists of eight short films on the topic of climate change: “A Sunny Day” by Faouzi Bensaidi, “Hungry Seagull” by Leon Wang, “In One Drag” by Alireza Hashempour, “Kokota: the Islet of Hope” by Craig Norris, “Olmo” by Silvio Soldini, “Tua Ingugu” by Daniela Thomas, “Qurut “by Shahrbanoo Sadat and the film “So Many Forests (Tant de forets)”, directed by Burku Sankur and Goeffrey Godet.
This is the second time that the European Union in Montenegro organizes the European Film Festival in the “virtual world”.
“The festival shows the diversity and complexity of the culture of the European Union through an innovative film program, paving the way for further fruitful interpersonal and cultural relations. We hope that this virtual festival will contribute to the film sector becoming a key driver of dialogue, especially in the current situation, where culture and creativity have become more important than ever,” the Festival’s website states.
Organizing the European Film Festival in Montenegro has now become a tradition. The fifth edition of the festival, which was the last one to be held in “normal conditions”, lasted two months, during which we visited eight Montenegrin cities: Podgorica, Ulcinj, Kotor, Petrovac, Bijelo Polje, Nikšić, Petnjica and Mojkovac.
