CANADIAN FILM INSTITUTE PRESENTS
THE 25th EUROPEAN UNION FILM FESTIVAL
NOVEMBER 18 – DECEMBER 5, 2010
The Canadian Film Institute (CFI) is proud to present the 25th edition of its prestigious European Union Film Festival. Featuring the Ottawa premieres of 26 films from the European Union’s member states, the festival offers something for all lovers of European cinema. The 25th European Union Film Festival runs from November 18 to December 5 in the Auditorium of the Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa. All films will be presented in their original languages, with English sub-titles.
“Suddenly, somehow, we have arrived at the quarter-century mark for the European Union Film Festival. It has been an incredible cinematic journey, featuring films by some of the greatest filmmakers in the history of Europe and, indeed, in the history of cinema. By the time the 25th edition of EUFF concludes, Ottawa audiences will have been presented over 400 national capital premieres of films from the European Union since 1984, ” says Tom McSorley, Executive Director of the Canadian Film Institute, which founded the festival in 1984. “It has been an exciting, inspiring, culturally enriching partnership between the CFI, the EU member states, the EU Delegation to Canada, and the Library and Archives Canada -- not to mention our extraordinary partnership with the local film-going public, which for decades has flocked to the festival by the thousands. We are very grateful for our community’s support of our work to bring the best of the European Union’s cinema to Canada’s capital.”
The 25th European Union Film Festival takes place under the current EU Presidency of Belgium. The Festival kicks off on Thursday, November 18, at 7:00pm with the Belgian drama, A PERFECT MATCH, starring legendary Belgian actor, Jan Decleir.
All films in the European Union Film Festival are National Capital premieres.
All films will be screened at the Auditorium of the Library and Archives Canada, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, with free parking available on either side of the building. Admission is $8.00 for CFI members, senior citizens and students, and $12.00 for the general public. Annual CFI memberships are available at the door for $15.00.
