    All you need to know about the 27th EU Film Festival

    The festival of diversity, i.e., the 27th EU Film Festival, is a place to witness films from around the world. The festival has now taken on a virtual avatar. It is a platter from which you will get to enjoy movies from 27 European countries, which will include acclaimed films from almost all major film festivals like Cannes, Venice, Berlin, and Tallinn. This year, India has a special place at the European Film Festival and has to offer movies that are rooted in a universal appeal, as cinema is something that travels beyond the boundaries of language. The ultimate aim of cinema is to connect with people, and this film festival does that.

    So what is so special about this film festival?

    You will get a chance to watch a bunch of internationally acclaimed films directed by veteran filmmakers. You can watch a total of 35 films from 27 countries across all genres. The Indian presence in the festival is Mukti Bhawan, Gattu, Village Rockstars, and Ek Hazzar Ki Note, and the movies that are addressing climate change are The Climate Challenge and Jharia.

    If you throw some light on these Indian films at the film festival, we can see that these films are poignant, stunning, and thought-provoking. If we just take a look at the film Village Rockstar, This movie speaks about the people of Chhaygaon in Assam; the movie travels through their lives through the landscape of the village. Village Rockstar is a deeply rooted film that says a lot through each of its frames.

    The movie Ek Hazzar Ki Note sheds light on the state of affairs in the rural areas of the region. If Mukti Bhavan is talking about life and death, whereas the movie Gattu shows us the dream of a kid who wanted to fly kites and reign supreme in the blue skies, If these Indian movies are telling stories of humanity, then movies like The Climate Challenge and Jharia speak loudly about climate change.

    The specially curated “India at the European Film Festival” section celebrates 60 years of diplomatic relations between the EU and India and puts a spotlight on the works of some of the most popular Indian filmmakers, such as Rajan Khosa, Shrihari Sathe, Rima Das, and Shubhashish Bhutiani.
