Founded in 1984, the European Union Film Festival (EUFF) is an annual showcase of the best of contemporary cinema produced in the European Union. Over the span of eighteen days, the Canadian Film Institute brings Ottawa audiences a wide selection of award-winning films from the Festival circuit, never-before-seen in the capital city. In this very special 30th year, and for the first time in the history of the EUFF, we are pleased to present a film all 28 European Union member states!
 
Experience the drama, comedy, tragedy, and passion of the moving image from across the Atlantic alongside film fans, academics, students, and local expatriate communities. Five-film Passports for CFI members, and special prices for members, seniors, and students are made available. This prestigious event is presented in collaboration with the European Union Member States and the Delegation of the European Union to Canada.

To help make this 30th anniversary even more special, we are bringing several European filmmakers to Ottawa to be with us at the Festival to present and discuss their work, and, of course, to meet our wonderful Festival audiences. Special thanks to Celebrate Ontario for helping to make this happen.

We are also excited to be presenting our Festival for the first time within the grand cinematic chambers of the ByTowne Cinema.
 
Vive le cinéma!
