European Union Film Festival
The 34th iteration of this series brings the best of contemporary cinema produced in the EU to Ottawa. There’s a coming-of-age drama from Ireland, a tension-filled tale of courage from Malta, and even a film from Romania about connecting with strangers while stranded in a train station.
