Cine Europa Film Festival 2020 (Free Viewing until November 29 only)

If you have a spare time, try to catch the Cine Europa Film Festival 2020. All films have English subtitles. Viewing online is FREE until November 29, 2020 (Sunday) only. After this time, there will be no access to the full films anymore. 

On its first three weeks, the films were scheduled for viewing each day. But this time, you can now watch ALL films in your own time. You just need to register first. This is completely FREE

Check the link of the full schedule, synopses and trailers here:


For the past decades, Cine Europa Film Festival is being screened for FREE at the theater, together with many other foreign film festivals held in Manila and other provinces in the Philippines. For many years, Cine Europa was screened at Shangrila Cineplex, Shangri-La Mall in Mandaluyong City.

Why am I recommending for you to watch these films? Some copies of foreign films (non-English ones) you find online don’t have English subtitles. When films get uploaded online, producers or film organizations report these uploads to be taken down. The worst part, that after being reported, they let viewers suffer by watching the films, either without the English subtitles, or without the audio/sound. 

The following films are my recommended list based on their trailers. I have yet to see these films. 


SET-A: Out of the 8 featured films in the line-up, I recommend the following 6 films:


Before the Frost (Denmark, 2018)
The Conductor (The Netherlands, 2018) - about Music
Bad Poems (Hungary, 2018) - about Writing/Literature
My Life as a Zucchini (Switzerland, 2016) - Animation


All These Sleepless Nights (Poland, 2016)
She is the Other Gaze (Austria, 2018) - a documentary about Art

SET-B (FESTIVAL SCOPE): Out of the 11 featured films in the line-up, I recommend the following 6 films:


Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles (Spain, 2019) - Animation about Art
Mellow Mud (Latvia, 2016)
The Line (Slovakia, 2017)
Too Far Away (Germany, 2019)


Jacob, Mimmi and the Talking Dogs (Latvia & Poland, 2019) - Animation
Lady Time (Finland, 2020) - Documentary
