The EUFF takes place in four cities nationwide, kicking off on 29 October – 8 November, with Kota Kinabalu screenings from the 10th to 16th December at GSC Suria Sabah.
Viewers can look forward to 22 movies from 18 participating European countries. Spanning drama, romance, comedy, horror, adventure and documentary, the wide-ranging programme reflects the region’s current status as a hotbed of cultural diversity and creativity.
Trophy magnets and indie darlings are abound in this year’s line-up - Academy Award winner Ida, Berlinale-decorated Aferim!, FIPRESCI-recognised A Hijacking and Phoenix as well as throught-provoking Dead Man Talking, share equal billing with crowd pleasers the likes of Revival, The Chair of Happiness, Sweet Little Lies, Someone Like Me and novel-based The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared. All EUFF films are presented in their original language with English subtitles.
EUFF tickets are sold at MYR7.50 (inclusive of GST), with the exception of GSC Movies’ title Purgatory. Three movies – The Chair of Happiness, A Gun in Each Hand and Only When I Dance – will be screened for free. Tickets can be purchased via GSC E-payment at www.gsc.com.my, GSC Mobile App (IOS, Android & Windows Phone) or at participating GSC outlets.
