Tuesday, 21 October 2014
Congratulations to Joshua Hunt who correctly guessed the SEVENTH film of the #EUFFCountdown! Joshua has won two free tickets to a night of the Festival, held November 13 - 30, 2014.

Director Signe Baumane’s animated film, Rocks In My Pockets, was the winner of the International Film Critics (FIPRESCI) Prize. The film is based on true events involving the women of Baumane’s family, and their battles with madness. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and Signe’s “twisted sense of humor”. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more.
