It’s May! A new month means adding new plans to our calendars and there’s quite a few things to be excited about. :) One of them being the return of the European Film Festival in Singapore held at The Projector cinema!
Nothing compares to watching a movie on the big screen and I’m personally a huge fan, you’ll always find me at the cinema or catching a screening! This May, returning for its 32nd year, the EUFF is once again showcasing a selection of over 20 films from European cinema today and if you’re looking for something different from the latest Hollywood releases (which I also love, don’t get me wrong!), you have to check out the full list of films here!
Every year, the EUFF features a European country, and this year’s featured country is Sweden, a country I’ve not been to yet, but will like to someday!
For now, I had the privilege to catch a screening of the EUFF 2023’s opening film Hilma, which tells the story of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint and her life in Sweden in the 19th to 20th century. Even as someone who didn’t know much about her, it was fascinating to learn more about her life and weave through all the different aspects of who she was. Today, the artist’s paintings are exhibited around Europe, UK and USA, including The Guggenheim in New York City and Tate Modern in London.
I really enjoyed the film and recommend checking it out, but of course, there’s so much more to choose from!
The EUFF is held at indie cinema The Projector and if you’ve always been interested to visit the retro movie theatre located at Golden Mile Tower, this is a great opportunity to do so! It was my first time there and I tried to capture a little bit of the place to share here.
One more thing, the EUFF is also screening 8 short films by student filmmakers from Lasalle, NTU and Ngee Ann Polytechnic (full list here), which I thought is a great way to celebrate up and coming talent!
Mark your calendars from 16 to 31 May 2023, pick your film (or films!) and book your tickets! Tickets cost $15 (standard) or $13 (students/NSF/seniors). Hope you enjoy your movie experience as much as I did. :)
Note: I was invited to a media screening of the European Film Festival 2023’s opening film Hilma, thank you to the EUFF’s press team for having me! This is not a paid post.
