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 nearly three weeks, 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.

Experience the drama, comedy, tragedy, and passion of the moving image from across the Atlantic alongside film fans, academics, students, and local expatriate communities. This prestigious event is presented in collaboration with the European Union Member States and the Delegation of the European Union to Canada.

Join us at our new home in the Alma Duncan Salon of the Ottawa Art Gallery for our 2018 edition.

We thank our partners in this important cultural event: the European Union Delegation to Canada, the participating EU Member States, and the Ottawa Art Gallery.
