European Film Festival 2008
7 Nov - The European Union Film Festival is back with its 9th edition in Kuala Lumpur from 13-23 November, providing another great opportunity for aficionados of international films to discover Europe's best latest productions as well as other recent award-winning movies.
The movies will be screened at three locations in Kuala Lumpur: GSC Mid Valley, GSC 1 Utama and GSC Pavilion. Last year nearly 4,000 tickets were purchased, making EUFF one of the highlights on the cultural calendar in Kuala Lumpur.
As France took over the presidency of the Council of the European Union on 1 July 2008, the Embassy of France in Kuala Lumpur is leading the organisation of the EUFF. This year's selection will showcase 19 films from 14 European countries, covering most genres.
Some of the movies this year are "After The Wedding" from Denmark (nominated for the Best Foreign Film at the Oscars in 2007), "Get Away From Me" from Spain", "Paris" from France, "9 And A Half Dates" from Hungary, "La Febbre", from Italy, "A Chicken Is No Dog" from Belgium, "Arabian Nights" from Luxembourg and many more.
Speaking at a press conference recently at GSC Mid Valley, French Ambassador to Malaysia H.E. Mr Marc Barety said: "Contrary to Hollywood's model, which is globally based upon commercial efficiency and entertainment, the European cinema shows another side of the world. It offers a more balanced, a more human-centred view, which is a good introduction to European traditions, and rich in historical and cultural context."
Head of the Delegation of the European Commission H.E. Vincent Piket added: "2008 has been declared the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue and the Film Festival is very much in that spirit. It is a modest but meaningful, artistic contribution to creating greater intercultural understanding throughout the world."
