The European Union Film Festival (EUFF) returns to Malaysia with the very best of European cinema and cultural diversity!

The eclectic line-up at this year’s EUFF features everything from comedy, romance and drama to animation and documentaries. Highlights include “The Best Offer”, by well known director Giuseppe Tornatore with music composed by none other than Ennio Morricone (who won the Best Composer Award for the movie at the 26th European Film Awards in December 2013) and a score of other notable movies, which have garnered a number of prestigious awards, among which are Belgium’s “The Broken Circle Breakdown”, nominated for the Oscar in the category of Best Foreign Language Film of the Year at the 2014 Academy Awards.
Or, the 2 movies presented by Denmark: “The Hunt” which received the award for Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival 2012 and “A Royal Affair”, nominated in 2013 as Best Foreign Language Film at both the Golden Globes and the Oscar. Finland’s “Niko 2 – Little Brother, Big Trouble”, the only animated movie of this edition of the festival, was awarded the Grand Prix as the best film in the feature section at the Tokyo Kinder Film Festival in 2013.
