29th European Union Film Festival
Monday, 10 November 2014
Starting this Thursday, November 13th, you can take a tour of the European Union with the silver screen: 27 films and 23 languages over 18 days!

Each evening of the 29th European Union Film Festival will be introduced by EU Member State Ambassadors, exclusive video greetings from filmmakers, or by special guests. Many nights are followed by complimentary Embassy receptions for all audience members. All of the films shown are Ottawa premieres, presented at the Auditorium of 395 Wellington St., Ottawa (Library and Archives Canada building).

This year's edition has it all: substance, style, and incredible variety. Everything from romantic comedy to historical drama to edgy documentary to an animated feature film. The range is amazing! We're so pleased with this year's selection, drawn from films that have played at prestigious festivals such as Cannes, Berlin, San Sebastian, Toronto, and Venice.

We're also thrilled to have two guest filmmakers attending the Festival to present their films! Slovak director, Jonáš Karásek (The Candidate) and Latvian-American animator, Signe Baumane (Rocks in My Pockets) are coming to Ottawa to introduce and answer questions about their films.

Tickets are $8.00 for CFI Members, seniors, and students, and $12.00 for everyone else. Avid cinema fan? If you buy an annual membership ($15.00), you'll be eligible for the 5-Film Passport (only $35.00) and save on all our films and festivals, all year.

New this year: skip the long lines and purchase your tickets in advance! Use the button on each film page or click here to buy your tickets, memberships, and 5-Film Passports via Uniiverse days before. Simply pick them up at the door when you arrive! Rush tickets are available at the box office each night.
