The best of European films on show in Abu Dhabi

Word on the street is that foreign-film gurus have a lot to look forward to this month as a new programme of European Film Screenings unfolds in the UAE capital. With Abu Dhabi Film Festival set to roll out the red carpet in October, there couldn’t be a better time to expand your cinematic horizons and discover some of the most best on-screen classics from Europe’s top directors.

A mix of recent releases, including La Grande Belleza by Paolo Sorrentino, which won the Oscar this year for Best Foreign Language Film and Walesa: Man of Hope – Andrzej Wajda’s biopic about Lech Walesa, the Polish human-rights campaigner, will be shown alongside some old favourites, including Wolfgang Becker’s Good Bye Lenin!

The programme will also include showings of some of the best Emirati short films, drawn from the archives of Abu Dhabi Film Festival (ADFF) and Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF), offering an excellent opportunity to get a feel for the local cinema scene and an introduction to some of its brightest talents.

There’s also a panel discussion on Cinema Co-production: Europe and the Way To Go, for those who really wanted to enhance their filmic knowledge.

Showings will take place from September 18 to 24 at Vox Cinemas in Marina Mall Abu Dhabi and also at Mercato Mall in Dubai. Entry is free.
