FILM PROGRAM

FOCUS – EUROPE, 30 YEARS AFTER THE BERLIN WALL

FOCUS – EUROPE, 30 YEARS AFTER THE BERLIN WALL

During the ENFF, it will be exactly 30 years since the East German Government announced that GDR citizens were free to travel to West Germany and West Berlin from that moment on. Today, Europe is building new walls and becoming increasingly divided. Our Focus program deals not only with the films reflecting on Europe during and after the Berlin Wall, but also very much with the current situation and re-establishment of divisions among people. From 6-10 November in Filmhuis Den Haag.
FOCUS – BULGARIAN NEW VOICES

FOCUS – BULGARIAN NEW VOICES

Gifted new voices, among whom are several strong female directors, have already being spotted and presented at big festivals like Berlin, Cannes, Rotterdam, Venice and IDFA. However, distribution of their films in the West is rare. That’s why we put in the limelight several compelling, exciting films from Bulgaria that reflect the spirit of today’s society. From 6-10 November in Filmhuis Den Haag.
FOCUS – CINEMA BY MIGRANTS/CINEMA ON MIGRANTS

FOCUS – CINEMA BY MIGRANTS/CINEMA ON MIGRANTS

In this program section we show work by people who contributed considerably to the film world of western Europe where they live, while originally coming from East and South East Europe. And films made by local filmmakers that look at the life of migrants; either in dealing with job opportunities, the way they adapt to the new social establishment, or their emotional charge of homesickness. From 6-10 November in Filmhuis Den Haag.

OLD GOLD: GRAND LOVE AFFAIRS

CLOSING FILM – CLASSIC

CLOSING FILM – CLASSIC

While the opening film deals with divided Europe today, we close the festival by going 30 years back in time, when regimes, rulers and norms changed overnight. In his brilliant film SWEET EMMA, DEAR BOBE (1992) that was recently restored, Istvan Szabo deals with the destinies of Russian language teachers in Hungary whose knowledge and services are no longer required. The film is also memorable for the remarkable performance by the Dutch actress Johanna ter Steege who will be our special guest during the ENFF in Filmhuis Den Haag.
