European Union Film Festival 2021
Europe without the jet lag.
Welcome to our second special edition of the European Union Film Festival! Due to the ongoing concerns caused by a now fading but by no means finished pandemic, the three festival presenters in Canada—the Canadian Film Institute in Ottawa, The Cinematheque in Vancouver, and the European Union Toronto Film Festival—along with the Delegation of the European Union to Canada and the EU member states, have decided to bring you another exciting virtual version of the EUFF.
This year’s online festival, like last year’s, is available to watch across Canada. Each film will be “live” for a 48-hour period; some will be supplemented with exclusive filmmaker interviews and introductions. All films will be presented in their original languages, with English subtitles available.
To launch the 2021 edition of the EUFF in Vancouver, The Cinematheque will present a special in-theatre screening of the Slovenian thriller Inventory on November 12. Details and tickets for this one-night event can be found here.
Our three film organizations are proud to work together again to bring you the best in contemporary cinema from the European Union. We wish you an eye-opening, thought-provoking, and entertaining European Union Film Festival.
Thank you, once more, for your passionate support during this marathon of challenging times.
Vive le cinéma!
For assistance in making the 2021 European Union Film Festival possible, The Cinematheque is grateful to Diodora Bucur, Press Officer, Delegation of the European Union to Canada (Ottawa); Tom McSorley, Executive Director, Canadian Film Institute (Ottawa); Jérémie Abessira, Executive Director, EU Toronto Film Festival; and the Embassies and Consulates of all European Union member states.
