Founded in 1984, the European Union Film Festival is an annual showcase of the best of contemporary cinema produced in the European Union. Over the span of eighteen days, the Canadian Film Institute (CFI) brings Ottawa audiences a wide selection of award-winning films from the Festival circuit, never-before-seen in the capital city.
Experience the drama, comedy, tragedy, and passion of the moving image from across the Atlantic and attend Embassy-hosted receptions, alongside film fans, academics, students, and local expatriate communities at Library and Archives Canada. Five-film Passports and special prices for members, seniors, and students are also available. This prestigious event is presented in collaboration with the European Union Member States and the Delegation of the European Union to Canada.
