European Union Film Festival 'Celebrating Women'


Diplomatic missions and cultural institutions of the European Union (EU) based in Kathmandu and Delhi are organising a four-day 'European Union Film Festival' at the
QFX Kumari Hall-2 at Kamal Pokhari from 20 to 23 Feb, 2014 under the theme 'Celebrating Women'.
 
As the theme suggests, the movies are based on the life of European women from sixteen different European Union Member States – UK, Denmark, Germany, Italy,
France, Finland, Slovakia, Lithuania, Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Portugal, Spain, Netherland and Sweden.
 
The festival showcases the highs and lows faced by European women and aims at creating solidarity for the protection and promotion of women's rights. The movies are
masterpieces of contemporary European cinematographic art.
 
'Six Days,' one of the seventeen movies being screened at the festival has been produced by the 'Kivinna till Kivinna Foundation' based in Sweden with the funding
from EU Instrument for Stability.
 
The movie is a universal story of women's courage and survival in the aftermath of war and highlights the works of three women's rights activists Lanja (Journalist in Iraq), Nelly (Social Worker in Liberia) and Maia (Health Worker in Abkhazia, breakaway faction of Georgia).
 
There will be four screenings each day, starting from 11:30, 13:30, 15:30 and 17:30 hrs. Free tickets can be booked two days ahead for each day's show by logging on to
qfxcinemas.com.
 
For bookings through telephone calls, tickets can be booked by calling number 014442220 early next week and throughout the festival.
 
All tickets are to be collected at the theatre's ticket counter. Bookings can also be done on the spot, but this is subject to the availability of tickets.
