European Film Festival in South Africa

Event date: 11/29/2019 - 12/8/2019 Export event

Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town are in for a ten-day feast of award-winning films as the European Film Festival celebrates its 6th edition in South Africa.

The festival will be held simultaneously at Cinema Nouveau theatres in the three cities from 29 November to 8 December. The carefully curated festival is packed with Oscar-nominated and multi-award-winning films from twelve countries including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

'Girl' is the Belgian/Flemish selection for the festival. Inspired by Nora Monsecour, a professional dancer and trans woman from Belgium who the director met in 2009, Girl tells the story of 15-year-old Lara who wants to become a ballerina. Lara is accepted into a ballet school and her dream seems closer than ever. But there is one problem: Lara was born into the body of a boy. A body that she will push to its limits in order for her to succeed.
