Calgary European Film Festival brings award-winning European cinema to the Globe

CALGARY — The Calgary European Film Festival (CEFF) is steadily becoming one of the must-see film festivals in town. This year, CEFF brings a total of 12 award-winning European films, each representing one European country. The festival runs November 12 to 15 at the Globe Cinema with the goal to bring the “best most recent European films to Calgary,” says Ana Glavan, the communications director at the European Cultural Society of Calgary.

Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Switzerland, Spain, Serbia and the Czech Republic are the 12 participating countries at this year’s festival. All films will be screened with subtitles.

Each film is carefully picked by the film’s country of origin’s community to ensure it was well-received back home, as well as having garnered enough international attention to pique Calgarians’ interests.

This year’s opening film is a 2015 Romanian drama directed by Radu Jude called Aferim! which won the Berlin Silver Bear for Best Director at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival. Aferim! explores the little-known 19th-century enslavement of the Gypsy minority.

Marshland (La Isla Mínima, 2014) is the Spanish thriller picked to represent Spain. It is directed by Alberto Rodríguez and has won multiple awards including 10 Goya Awards. We will also be seeing Hungarian horror-fantasy comedy called Liza the Fox-Fairy (Liza, a rókatündér, 2015). The film centres around a nurse whose only friend is the ghost of a Japanese pop star and who finds herself under a strange curse.

CEFF is in its fourth year, and according to Glavan, the festival is starting to attract more and more Calgarians who are not of European descent: “This is what we’re aiming for, because, good movies have their own international language that is appealing to everybody,” she says.

The Calgary European Film Festival runs Nov. 12-15. Tickets and passes are available at
