Virtual Cine Europa 23 Film Festival | October 31-November 29, 2020

As everyone is getting adjusted to the “new normal” where health and safety protocols are foremost in seeking ways to relax, Cine Europa 23 brings a comprehensive roster of films never before seen in the Philippine entertainment landscape. 

Watch at

Starting this weekend,  a carousel of films  will certainly satisfy your cravings for  romance, comedy, thriller with films such as  Commes de Garcons (Let the Girls Play) from France to Ženy v běhu (Women on the Run) from the Czech Republic; Swedish film And Then We Danced and  Buñuel en el Laberinto de Las Totugas from Spain to King of the Belgians from Belgium and Bad Poems from Hungary.

You will never run out of choices, as during this coming first week of Cine Europa,  films from countries such as Latvia, Poland, Luxembourg, Slovakia, The Netherlands, Denmark, Italy and Finland,  will provide you a chance to feel how it is to come out of age, to fall in love, to dream and to hope, to fight for what is right and to persevere. Films, after all, can always bring your  emotions to the fore and  let you pause for a moment to reflect on the common struggles and  how you can  overcome and triumph over these challenges.

Cine Europa has even made it a notch higher as its carefully-curated films do not just entertain but provide a deeper insight on the complexities, excitement and vibrance of the European culture, heritage and lifestyle.     

Mr. Rafael de Bustamante, First Counsellor of the European Union Delegation to the Philippines, said that Cine Europa aims at providing quality films to showcase the diversity of the European creative industries and to highlight cultural relations between the European Union and the Philippines.  

Cine Europa shall also feature sessions with filmmakers and film experts to provide their Master’s classes on filmmaking, history and shared cultural value between the EU and the Philippines  to Filipino directors and film enthusiasts.  

For the past years, we have seen how Cine Europa travelled to other parts of the country. We are glad to know that the EU Delegation to the Philippines and other embassies, cultural institutions are finding ways for creating avenues, despite the pandemic, for cultural appreciation and for allowing us to stay connected with each other, said Film Development Council of the Philippines Chairperson Liza Dino

Cine Europa brings 19 films from 20 European countries for 30 days and are accessible upon signing up at until 29 November. Cine Europa also features films from Festival Scope, the EU’s library of quality films, so moviegoers will be able to watch films from countries not represented in the Philippines. The roster of films adds up to those individually provided by European embassies in Manila.
