The online European Film Festival aims to be a magic mirror that we can use to jointly get through the current challenging times we are witnessing. The festival displays the variety and the complexity of the European Union’s culture through innovative film programming, opening up paths for further fruitful interpersonal and cultural relationships. We hope this virtual festival will contribute to making the film sector a key driver for dialogue, especially in the current situation, where culture and creativity have become more important than ever.
A special section on biodiversity, curated by CMS Vatavaran, will take you on a journey through hitherto unexplored ecosystems, highlighting the rich diversity of nature and wildlife in regions from the Himalayas and the Western Ghats to the plains of Central Europe. Particularly relevant given present environmental and climate crises, these films offer a unique cinematic lens to show how communities across the EU and India are working towards the protection of biodiversity hotspots.
