“When COVID 19 hit the world Toronto’s EUFF – European Union Film Festival , The Canadian Film Institute in Ottawa and The Cinematheque in Vancouver joined forces along with European Union Delegations to present a virtual festival. As this festival successfully grows, EUFF will continue to offer highly curated content to all Canadians while remaining committed to bringing the Toronto film community together.”
This year the 19th EUFF and the second virtual edition at Toronto’s Spadina Theatre, is featuring 28 films selected by the participating EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
The EUFF is a great way to promote diversity and engage in cultural collaboration between Canadian and EU communities!
