The European Film Festival 2016 takes place from 6 to 15 May in 4 cities in South Africa: Cape town, Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria. 11 European films will be shown. The festival is set to bring the best of contemporary European film to cinemas in South Africa.
As Europe is busy rethinking itself and its place in the world, there is one thing that we can continue to be sure of: more than ever, artists and thinkers all over the continent – and beyond – are needed to share their voices, to challenge and question Europe, and to show us new facets of what it means to arrive in Europe, to live in Europe – or to leave it and look at it from the outside.
Film has always been a powerful medium to share such views – and with this in mind, we are more than happy to present the European Film Festival 2016, which is set to bring the best of contemporary European film to cinemas in South Africa.
