Opening Eastern Neighbours Film Festival

Filmhuis Den Haag | 1 November 2017 | 19:00 hours (Zaal 1, by invitation only) | 19:15 hours (Zaal 3)

ENFF honours film productions of Eastern and South-eastern Europe, screening 43 films, mainly Dutch premieres, and having 21 guests from 16 countries present. New edition of ENFF brings real gems of the recent, engaging cinema of Eastern and Southeastern Europe – Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine.

This year’s opening film is MY AUNT IN SARAJEVO by Goran Kapetanovic, filmmaker present! This Swedish/Bosnian compelling film has won two prestigious Guldbagge Awards for the Best Director and for the Best Actress in a supporting role. It is an emotional story of a daughter-father relationship facing the past, present and shaping their future.

Next to GORAN KAPETANOVIC, the director of the film, our special guests at the opening night is the Macedonian musician CVETANKA SOZOVSKA. She is a piano soloist, composer, choir conductor, music professor. Cvetanka is very inspired in combining her classical musical education and styles with the Macedonian ethno heritage, turning these elements into a unique form. Tonight’s presentation is a try of showing such a symbiosis. Come and join us at the opening of Eastern Neighbours Film Festival. More info and tickets: here.
