A Stranger. (Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina)

ONCE again the European Film Weeks are being staged in Helsinki. With 2014 seeing European Elections being held, this year’s theme is “Act.React.Impact”.

Here 29 inspirational and courageous films from around Europe showcase various examples of the collective and individual actions of people seeking to make a difference. The subject matter reflects the sheer variety of cinema being currently produced in Europe today. Everything from Sweden’s The Pirate Bay, to the Troubles in Ireland and African refugees in the Canary Islands shares the spotlight.

The event is organised by the European Commission Representation in Finland and the European Parliament Information Office in Finland, in cooperation with Embassies and cultural institutes of EU member states and candidate countries.

All films are being shown at Kamppi’s 100-seat Eurooppasali. With each screening free of charge, tickets are available one hour before each screening. See what you can find.
