European Film Festival – EUFF

Arts and Creative Industries

The European Film Festival in South Africa will celebrate its 10th edition. From 12 – 22 October, the festival will screen an inspired lineup of 16 new award-winning films in Johannesburg and Cape Town, with a special programme in Durban.   

A partnership project of the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), the Delegation of the European Union to South Africa, the participating European embassies and cultural agencies, the festival will feature films representing Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Ukraine,  in addition to an African-European co-production film, set in Sudan.

“We hope this festival will strengthen connections between Europe and South Africa, and its immediate neighbours, Eswatini and Lesotho. May this festival stimulate discussion and new ideas around our shared experiences, hopes and dreams, as together we face our ever-changing world,” says the European Union’s Ambassador to South Africa, Sandra Kramer.

Taking place under the theme Transition, this year’s programme will offer a cinematic reflection of the transition people go through during our turbulent and fast-moving times. As festival co-director and curator Peter Rorvik explains; “There can be numerous transitional moments in a lifetime; awakenings, re-awakenings, renewal of purpose, our self-understanding, of who we are, and our direction in life.  Transition is, in essence, a response to change, a process of managing change, or making a change.”

Following its time in South Africa, the festival will present events at the Alliance Française in Eswatini (20-22 October) and Lesotho (20 – 29 October).  These special programmes are organised in partnership with the Delegations of the European Union to the Kingdoms of Eswatini and Lesotho respectively, and the Alliance française in Maseru and Mbabane.
