1 Nov – Coming strong into its 23rd year, the Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Malaysia is thrilled to take audiences back to selected Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) in Kuala Lumpur and Penang for the much-anticipated European Film Festival (EUFF).

The European Film Festival celebrates its 23rd year in Malaysia and movie-lovers will be able to catch a slate of 17 films from 20 countries at selected Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

In partnership with Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC), the European Film Festival is once again made physically possible in the cinemas – shining the spotlight on contemporary award-winning European cinema that reflects Europe's diversity, inclusivity and solidarity.

Audiences will be elated with the festival's physical screenings that will take place in the following cities and GSC outlets:

The EUFF aims to showcase Europe's rich cultural diversity with these critically acclaimed independent films, displaying the best of European cinema with award winning actors, directors and crew.

"Mother of Apostles" opens the film festival with a story that tells of immeasurable maternal love. For the sake of saving her child, a mother is capable of doing anything, even going through the hell of war. Through her eyes, we see the horrors of war: the life of people living in the occupied territories, the faces distorted and lives stopped by the war. The film is inspired by true events that took place in Eastern Ukraine in 2014.

The EUFF also features an inspirational family-friendly animated film, "Even Mice Belong in Heaven" explores the idea of an uncanny friendship between two animals, a mouse and a fox. It is a story that touches on familiar lessons in life and shares the values about selflessness, generosity and loyalty, messages that are relevant today. This film will bring fun and laughter for both kids and parents alike.
