EFA The Month of European Film 2023 - year two Highlights


Month of European Film: What is happening?

After a successful pan-European launch in 2022, the European Film Academy presents the Month of European Film 2023 as Europe’s own film and award season. Starting on 1 November, it celebrates the diversity of European film for six weeks until its grand finale on 9 December with the European Film Awards in Berlin. Across Europe, thanks to the Academy’s partner Europa Cinemas, flagship cinemas in 40 countries from Iceland to Greece, from Portugal to Georgia – including capital cities, small towns and national cinema networks – highlight European films, presenting special programmes, events and dedicated retrospectives. At the same time, the global arthouse streaming platform MUBI presents a special focus on European films, and for the first time, the VOD portal DAFilms highlights a selection of European documentaries, both allowing film lovers around the world to participate.



During the Month of European Film, there will be a multitude of different initiatives in 75 cities and towns all over the continent. Instead of a uniform catalogue, each participating cinema in Europe is creating a unique programme according to their expertise and catering to their audience's taste.  All participating cinemas screen European films, many of these films included in the annual Academy Selection that is announced every year in various parts as of August. The programmes also include the films nominated for the LUX Audience Award 2024. Various screenings all over Europe are introduced by filmmakers and by enthusiastic members of the European Film Academy.


Where in Europe can I join?

The Month of European Film has doubled its number of participating cinemas in one year time: this year, cinemas in 75 cities and towns are taking part.

Month of European Film: outside the cinema

The European Film Academy is delighted to continue its partnership with global film distributor, streaming service and production company, MUBI to celebrate the Month of European Film. From 1 November, MUBI's streaming platform will feature a spotlight on 100 European films.

The documentary VOD portal DAFilms will at the same time celebrate European documentaries with a selection of 30 titles. The European Film Academy welcomes DAFilms as a new partner!



Month of European Film: Closing ceremony in Berlin       

The ceremony of the European Film Awards is also the Closing ceremony of the Month of European Film. Honorary award winners, nominees, special guests and a large number of Academy members and supporters will join at the Arena in Berlin to celebrate a year of European cinema, and get together to support each other in the difficult times we are living in.



Why are we doing this?

The Month of European Film will continue to grow every year to include more and more places and ways for film enthusiasts to join in a great and sustainable celebration of European films. The aim of the Month of European Film is to create a European film season in the upcoming years, encourage audiences to actively participate and convince rights holders and key industry players to help enable a synchronised and joint celebration of European cinema in the last months of the year. As of 2025, this “film season” will run from 1 November to 31 December, and its closing event will be the ceremony of the European Film Awards, planned for mid-January 2026.



Month of European Film: Our partners

The Month of European Film is an initiative of the European Film Academy supported by the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme of the European Union, in cooperation with Europa Cinemas, CICAE, MUBI and DAFilms as well as numerous local partners. This year’s edition of the European Film Awards is additionally supported by the Federal State Commissioner for Culture and the Media, the Senate of Berlin, FFA, and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
