European Film Festival 2023 Focuses On Sweden
Foreign film buffs, rejoice. The European Film Festival (EUFF) is back in Singapore once again.
It will feature 24 prominent films that best capture the essence of contemporary European cinema – a showcase of the continent’s plurality in perspectives, cultures and sensibilities.
The EUFF’s featured country this year is Sweden, which makes its choice of opening film, Hilma, a fitting one. It is an inspirational biopic centred around the love, life and tribulations of revolutionary abstract artist Hilma af Klint (read on for our take on it below).
It received nominations for Best Director – Audience Choice and Best Make-Up at the 2023 Guldbagge Awards, which is one of Sweden’s leading film awards.
Other films include the award-winning Czech flick Il Boemo, which depicts the life of 18th century Baroque composer Joser Myslivecek; and Into The Darkness, Denmark’s contributory World War II tale about a family torn asunder by war.
There’s something in it for sports fans too, with EUFF’s closing film Campeones. It tells the classic story of a disgraced professional basketball coach who gets tasked with training a team of people with intellectual disabilities to compete in a national championship.
These will be accompanied by eight student-made short films from three Singaporean schools – namely, Lasalle College of the Arts, Puttnam School of Film and Animation; Nanyang Technological University’s School of Art, Design and Media, and Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s School of Film & Media Studies.
The films will be screened by indie cinema darling The Projector primarily at its movie theatre in Golden Mile Tower (which is not wheelchair-accessible) from 16 to 31 May 2023, though the closing film will be screened at its Dhoby Ghaut theatre.
Festival tickets are available here now and priced at $15. Discounted tickets at $13 are sold for seniors who provide identification; further discounts at $11 are also available for members of The Projector Senior Club.
