Europa! Europa Film Festival 2022

For the first time, the world’s best new European films come to cinemas across Australia for 3 weeks of inspiring and entertaining Australian premiere screenings, live music and special events.

A place for extraordinary cinema, vibrant storytelling and discussion, and bustling community congregation, Europa! Europa gives national audiences a kaleidoscopic window into the experiences of a diverse continent – incorporating over 50 countries – and its people.

The program will be assembled by Europa! Europa’s inaugural Artistic Director Thomas Caldwell. Caldwell, who was previously the Programmer at the Melbourne International Film Festival, has spent the year combing the world’s premiere film festivals, including Cannes Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Locarno Film Festival and San Sebastián International Film Festival, in search of an expansive program of films that present a snapshot of the cinema of contemporary Europa.

“From the countries who have birthed and helped define arthouse and world cinema, to the countries where the film industry is still small and emerging, European cinema is so incredibly rich and diverse. By programming a selection of films that represent the entire continent in all its complexity and wonder, Europa! Europa will be a truly dynamic cinematic event on the Australian festival calendar.” — Thomas Caldwell, Artistic Director

At a time of limited overseas travel, we invite audiences to join us for a vibrant European summer at home: special events include al fresco dining and cinema, filmmaker discussions, live music and more.

Europa! Europa is presented by Moving Story Entertainment, the owner/operators of Classic Cinemas, Elsternwick; Lido Cinemas, Hawthorn; Cameo Cinemas, Belgrave and Ritz Cinemas, Randwick; and the producers of successful national festivals the Jewish International Film Festival, Fantastic Film Festival Australia, and the Children’s International Film Festival. Design for the project was completed by Melbourne’s Studio Round.

Europa! Europa screens only in cinemas in February 2022.
