Cine Europa 26 travels to FDCP Manila and Cultural Center of the Philippines

Cine Europa starts its tour in Manila as it goes to the Film Development Council’s Cinematheque in Kalaw, then moves to Liwasang Kalikasan, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, this weekend. All FREE films are back to 100% physical screenings.  

To open the FDCP leg of Cine Europa are screenings of Olmo, Le Variabili Dipendenti and Io Sto Bene from Italy-, Ramona from Spain, and the Irish film, Rớise and Frank, on 21 June 

To show the EU’s solidarity with Ukraine, the film Moi dumky tykhi (“My thoughts are silent”) will be shown. The plot follows a mother and son relationship when the son wants to move to a different country.

Other films that will be screened at the FDCP are Marocco (“Mikado”) from Romania, and Srdce na Dlani (“Heart to Heart) from the Czech Republic. 

On 24 and 25 June, enjoy outdoor screenings at the Liwasang Kalikasan at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The films to be shown here are: 

Bėgikė (“Runner”), a co-production from Lithuania and the Czech Republic about Marija and her frantic search for her boyfriend, in what is described as a story of sacrifice and the achievement of total freedom.

Mitra, a film from the Netherlands about Haleh and the woman that betrayed her and caused the death of her daughter in Iran 37 years before – a story about revenge and friendship.

Kratt, from Estonia, about a magical creature who will do whatever its master says, with the quest to buy a soul from the devil.

Smagen af sult (“A Taste of Hunger”) from Denmark, about a family, their gourmet restaurant and their quest for a Michelin Star.

Murina, from Croatia and Slovenia, a coming of age film about a teenager, her father, and an old friend with a life-changing deal.

• Historja – Stitches for Sapmi. A Swedish documentary about the Sami female artist Britta Marakatt-Labba, whose art showcases the past and the present of Sami culture, and how reindeer husbandry is being affected by the global climate crisis. 

Admission to the screenings is FREE on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The EU brings 28 films from different EU Member States, as well as Ukraine as a guest participant. These films may be watched onsite in our venue partners nationwide until 16 July in Metro Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod, and Davao. 

Cine Europa 26 counts on the cooperation of the Film Development Council of the Philippines, the National Parks and Development Committee, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Shangri-La Plaza and SM Cinemas. 

The EU Delegation, the European Union Member States Embassies together with Goethe-Institut have carefully curated Cine Europa 26 with films with a wide spectrum of genres from drama to animation, to cater for every taste and interest.
