As the challenges facing Europe increase and the region’s political landscape continues to shift, EIFF celebrates the rich cultural impact and importance of European cinema. This selection is unified by a passion for striking storytelling and includes films from France, Ireland, Hungary, Belgium, Austria, Croatia, Germany, North Macedonia, Greece, Ukraine, Switzerland, Belgium, Georgia, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Iceland.

One of cinema’s strengths is its variety, and the films in this selection bring us a little closer to our European neighbours. In doing so, they add further understanding to what it means to be European.
