European Film Festival to be held at The Projector from May 16 to 31
Standard tickets to each film screening are priced at $15.
This year’s run of the European Film Festival (EUFF) will take place from May 16 to 31 at The Projector.
In collaboration with the European Union Delegation to Singapore, the event will showcase a curated selection of European films that are representative of Europe’s shared cultural heritage.
Standard tickets to each screening are available at $15 and concession tickets at $13 for students, seniors, domestic workers, Singapore Film Society (SFS) members, National Servicemen (NSF) and persons with disabilities.
A total of 24 films from different European countries will be featured at the event.
Some notable titles that will be screened include Austrian film The Counterfeiters, Polish film Woman on the Roof and Spanish film Champions.
Academy Award-winning film The Counterfeiters is based on the true story of Salomon Sorowitsch, who was arrested by Nazis in 1944 for counterfeiting.
Forced to produce fake foreign currency to weaken the economies of Germany’s enemies, Solomon faces a moral dilemma between prolonging the war and doing what is right.
Woman on the Roof features Polish actress Dorota Pomykała, who received various accolades from the 2022 Tribeca and Polish Film Festivals. The film is about Mirka, a 60 year old woman who commits a bank robbery and discovers that her need for money is surpassed by her need for love.
Champions follows a basketball coach who coaches a team made out of people with intellectual disabilities to complete his community service.
This film addresses issues of human rights, social inclusion, self-improvement and exemplifies the importance of teamwork. It received three Goya awards, which is typically referred to as the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars.
Most of the films will be screened at the Golden Mile Tower outlet, while the Picturehouse outlet at The Cathay will present the closing film, Champions, on May 31.
Each movie will only be available at one timing. Tickets are available for purchase from EUFF’s website.
