European Film Festival 2017 in South Africa

Treat yourself to the best of European Cinema

3658

The European Film Festival is back for the 4th time at Cinema Nouveau theatres in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Durban from 5 to 14 May. The Belgian film in the 2017 film festival,  "King of the Belgians", is sponsored by the General Representation of the Government of Flanders together with the Embassy of Belgium. King of the Belgians is a comedic piece coming out of Belgium, which sees the Belgian king and his entourage crossing the Balkans in a madcap adventure, after learning of a coup back home. Acknowledged by the Rotterdam International Film Festival, this movie is a road trip with a difference, at once thoughtful, hilarious and wild.
