Film festivals and movie theatres are not just about bringing people together. They offer the unique experience of sharing the art of cinema. After the pandemic, film festival curators are redefining the film festival.

The European Union supports more than 100 EU Film Festivals around the world – in different countries, societies, and contexts. Over the last three years, they have attracted more than 1 million spectators to EU film festivals. How are these film festivals evolving after the pandemic? How does the audience respond to European films? What side events are of interest to professionals and impactful in societies in third countries?

In this session, discover how EU Film Festivals help bring European cinema to audiences worldwide, experience intercultural connections and promote respect for diversity.
