27th EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL


About The Event

Event Organiser - European Film Festival 2018

27th EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL - This year we're looking to broaden the festival beyond the film screenings themselves. The festival's curator Nyambura M. Waruingi is doing this by programming the films in conversation with each other, together with related side-events. For example, on Europe Day (9 May) the Goethe Institute will screen "Losers & Winners", "Europe At Sea", and "The Wait". These films examine different aspects of migration in Europe, and there'll also be a panel discussion about the theme. The festival programme also includes events aimed at participants in Kenya's film industry. These include workshops with the Script-Writers' Guild and master-classes on various challenges facing the industry. Running for most of the month of May, this year's festival will screen some fifty films originating from twenty European countries as well as from Kenya. Dialogue will be in the original languages of the films, with English subtitles for the non-English-language films. Almost all of the festival will be open to the general public. The main exceptions will be the opening and closing nights, on Friday 4 May and Saturday 26 May. For public screenings, entry will be completely free of charge. The festival is organised jointly by the Embassies of the participant European countries and the EU Delegation to Kenya. The festival has benefited hugely from the support of stakeholders from across Kenya's film industry, including both the official national authorities (the Kenya Film Classification Board and the Kenya Film Commission) and leading film-makers. We're also grateful to Buehler Limited for sponsoring the festival. In addition the venues for the festival are not only locations for screenings: they're also partners in it, and are helping to promote the festival as well as making their spaces available for the festival at reduced cost or completely free of charge. Most of the films to be screened have been kindly made available by the Embassies of the participant European countries, who are also providing financial support to the festival. Kindly note that more information will be added over the coming weeks and that a few details may change, so if you're planning to go to the festival then please come back to this page to check for more Friday 25 May - National Theatre 10:00 Workshops 15:00 Short & Sweet: He and She (2010, 88mins, Germany) 17:00 Wazi FM (Vincezno Cavallo, 62mins, Italy/Kenya), followed by Q&A with director, producers and actors 19:00 Una Pistola en Cada Mano (Cesc gay, 2012, 95mins, Spain) Saturday 26 May - National Theatre 14:00 Sanctuary (Len Collin, 2017, 97mins, Ireland) Closing ceremony - Private Event Sunday 27 May - National Theatre 10:00 Workshops 14:00 Iqbal Farooq (T.
