European Film Festival 2013 begins Friday 17th May
The Delegation of the European Union in Partnership with European Union Member States and the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination (EBCCI) is hosting the fifth annual European Film Festival from this Friday 17 May until 26 May at the EBCCI, University of the West Indies. Once again admission to the screenings is free to the public and there will be English subtitles for each film, except the one from the United Kingdom.
This year’s Festival features 24 films from 15 countries, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and Croatia – which joins the European Union in July.
The selection is a mixture of primarily drama and comedy but there are also romance, science fiction and war films. There are two children’s movies, “Kooky” and “The Great Bear“, to be screened the first weekend of the Festival on 18 and 19 May respectively.
The most accomplished film this year is the Danish entry “Melancholia“ which won Best Film at the 2011 European Film Awards, while Kirsten Dunst won Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. It was directed by world renowned Danish cinematographer Lars Von Trier.
Movie-goers are also in for a treat with some food and wine sampling from European countries.
Therefore, if Cannes is too far away, too expensive, seize the opportunity of the European Film Festival at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination!
