The European Film Festival (EFF) of Trinidad and Tobago, a showcase of some of the latest movies from Europe and eagerly awaited annually by cinema lovers, is now taking place in May.
Set for its 17th edition, the EFF showcases films from the European Union (EU), and is organised by the European Union Member States with diplomatic missions in T&T—France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom—and the EU Delegation. This year the United Kingdom is the coordinating mission of the EFF.
As in 2012, the EFF will partner with the trinidad+tobago film festival.
The festival will have its gala opening on 9 May, with a screening of the new British comedy Jadoo. Public screenings run from 15–28 May at MovieTowne Port-of-Spain. Screenings at MovieTowne in Tobago will take place from 22–28 May.
The lineup of 27 films will be rich and varied, ranging from hard-hitting dramas and suspense thrillers to hilarious comedies and children’s films. Many of the selected movies are award-winning titles by some of Europe’s top filmmakers.
“I am delighted to announce that the European Film Festival 2013 will take place in May,” said British High Commissioner Arthur Snell. “The EFF partners once again with the trinidad+tobago film festival, and this year promises a vivid and diverse range of films from across the European Union, once again reflecting the rich spectrum of cultures found within the EU.”
Tickets for all screenings are $30 each, with tickets for children and students in uniform priced at $20.
