Singapore's second-longest running film festival is back for its 24th year!

I was invited to a media preview of the Academy Award winning Italian film "The Great Beauty" at the School of Film & Media Studies, Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Directed by Paolo Sorrentino, this visually stunning Italian film won an Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film. It will be the opening film for 24th EUFF.

This year, the Delegation of the European Union to Singapore and the Embassy of Italy in Singapore (via the Italian Cultural Institute in Singapore) will showcase a selection of 27 European films. Films screened are mostly recent and have encountered success in their country of origin.

    1. The European Union Film Festival is an annual event organised worldwide that showcases a selection of European films, giving local audiences a taste of Europe's diversity and creativity. Films screened are mostly recent and have encountered success in their country of origin. The films showcased in this festival may belong to a specific country, but they are all representative of Europe's common cultural heritage. In Singapore, the European Union Film Festival is now in its twenty fourth edition, and serves as a window into the intriguing world of European cinema.
