EUROPA! EUROPA: AUSTRALIA’S NEWEST FILM FESTIVAL IS SET TO SHOWCASE EUROPEAN CINEMATIC DELIGHTS DOWN UNDER
Europa! Europa, a new film festival, will present a spectacular selection of European cinema to audiences in Melbourne and Sydney from February 4 – 27 2022.
For the first time, the world’s best new European films come to cinemas across Australia for three weeks of inspiring and entertaining Australian premiere screenings, live music and special events.
Europa! Europa will reveal their inaugural program with a screening of Dutch auteur Paul Verhoeven’s erotically charged thrille Benedetta; on January 16 in Melbourne at Classic Cinemas, Elsternwick and the film’s Sydney Premiere at Ritz Cinema, Randwick.
“From the countries who have defined arthouse and world cinema, to regions where the film industry is still small and emerging, European cinema is so incredibly rich and diverse. Europa! Europa will present a selection of dynamic films that represent the entire continent in all its complexity and wonder to Australian audiences,” said Europa! Europa’s Artistic Director, Thomas Caldwell.
Program Launch tickets ($24-$28) are on sale Friday 26 November. Tickets include holy water and wafer on arrival.
