2nd Annual European Union Film Festival in China

Following the great success of the first Annual EU Film Festival in China, held in Beijing in December 2008, we are pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual EU Film Festival in China will take place from November 5th to December 4th, 2009. This year the film festival is expanding and will take place in two cities: Beijing and Chengdu.

The Ambassador of Sweden Mikael Lindström and EU Ambassador Serge Abou will hold a press conference to launch the festival in Beijing:

Time: Wednesday 14th October at 3 pm.

Place: French Cultural Centre, Gongti Xilu 18. Chaoyang District

The film festival, which is financed by the Delegation of the European Commission to China and supported by the Swedish Presidency, invites all 27 EU Member States to showcase one recent, popular and successful film, and such a wide and diverse selection will enable the Chinese general public to discover the new faces of European cinema. Each movie will be shown twice in Beijing and once in Chengdu, with screenings at the Centre Culturel Français (French Cultural Centre), the Instituto Cervantes (Cervantes Institute), the Istituto Italiano di Cultura (the Italian Institute of Culture), the Polish Embassy, the Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art, the German Embassy School and the Broadway Moma Cinemathèque in Beijing; the screenings in Chengdu will take place at the Stellar Yingdu Cinema.

Each film will be screened in the original language with English and Chinese subtitles.
