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 sixth annual European Film festival from 5 to 9 November 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 13 films from 10 countries, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
The selection is a mixture of primarily drama and comedy but there are also romance, crime, and a fantasy.
There are three general audience films Mister Twister – Class of Fun, Almanya – Welcome to Germany and a Spanish version of Snow White which will all be screened on the weekend of 8th and 9th November.
The most accomplished film this year is the Italian comedy/drama La Grande Bellezza (The Great Beauty) which won the Oscar for best foreign language film in 2013.
On both the Thursday two films will be screened while on the Weekend four films will be sown on the Saturday and Sunday, beginning at 3:00 p.m. each day with one of the general audience films.
Head of the European Union Delegation to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Mikael Barfod said: “It is a pleasure for us to source these films from our member states in an effort to provide the Barbadian public with an alternative movie experience. At the same time speakers of certain European languages will get an opportunity to experience the language being spoken.”
