FREE 16th Cine Europa Festival 2013 Film Schedule

Cine Europa is celebrating its 16th year in the Philippines! According to Julian Vassallo, Political Counsellor at the EU 
Delegation to the Philippines, "With its expansion from three to six cities last year, attendance has increased by a quarter from 29,000 in 2011 to 36,500 in 2012. What is now perhaps the largest film festival in the Philippines will this year present an original, entertaining and thought-provoking set of 21 European movies, while reserving a special place for quality Filipino films." Well this could be very true indeed because for the last two years I have been constantly and yeah patiently waiting in the line seems getting longer and longer every season! 

In Cine Europa you will get to watch the best movies from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain, Slovak Republic, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom. This is like travelling in the comforts of the cinema house to know their culture and their story.

Of course this festival will also include the screening of selected quality Filipino movies, some of which have noteworthy European connections.

4 to 15 September - Shangri-la Cineplex Mandaluyong, Manila NCR

23 to 29 September – Cinematheque Iloilo City
