To celebrate La Fête de l’Europe 2017 we are delighted to invite you to a special screening of eight European short films in partnership with Eurochannel.
A unique event, this event invites viewers to follow talented directors on an exciting exploration of Europe. It translates a vivid image of the Europe’s diversity, as well as its identity as a whole. The programme is a reflection of that complexity, with different genres, themes and languages. The theme is "A League of Their Own".

Shhh (2015, UK)
Directed by Nick Rizzini.

Botev is an idiot (2012, Bulgaria)
Directed by Deyan Bararev.
Vasko has written an essay that questions Hristo Botev, who is widely considered by Bulgarians as a national hero. When the headmaster of the school herself, offended by the essay, interrogates him in front of the whole class, Vasko explains that he meant something entirely different.
Petit Flirt (2014, Greece)
Directed by Yiannis Bournazos.
Demosthenis, a shy scientist, meets the beautiful and charming Eleana, a suspiciously good-willing stranger.

Her glamour, combined with his overblown bladder, provoke a romantic encounter.
Finding Richard (2014, UK)
Directed by Rhys Davies.
On hearing that the bones of Richard III have been found, Gull, a young boy, begins his own archaeological quest. Helping him on this journey is his granddad, himself a dreamer who sees something of himself in Gull. But what Gull finds isn’t quite what he - or his granddad- expected.
