L'Europe autour de l'Europe Film Festival


L'Europe autour de l'Europe - Festival de films d'auteur et d'art de la Grande Europe  is an annual, two-week-long film festival, which has taken place each spring in Paris, France since 2006.

Every year, the festival presents around 100 arthouse films, features and shorts, coming from 47 countries members of the Council of Europe.  Each year’s selection centres on a different theme and the festival pays tribute to the films of a different European country selected for the quality of the recent productions and the richness of its film history.

The festival offers opportunities to initiate and strengthen links between European film professionals and to re-establish links between the traditions of national cinema and emerging European talents.

To best present the rich diversity of European film culture to a wide audience, the feature films, documentaries, shorts, animations, new media and experimental films are shown in cinemas, cultural institutions and exhibition spaces throughout Paris.  Besides film screenings, the festival also organizes film - related book signings, concerts, master classes, and panel discussions with filmmakers and other prestigious guests from throughout Europe.
