European Independent Film Festival this weekend
We’ve all heard of Cannes and Sundance, but what about The European Independent Film Festival? Taking place at Left Bank arthouse cinema Le Grand Action and Le Triomphe this weekend , the European Independent Film Festival (ÉCU) seeks to discover, promote and screen the very best independent filmmaking talent from across the world, focusing particularly on Europe. Over the course of the weekend, 72 films from 28 countries, including feature films, short films, experimental films and documentaries, will compete for the title ‘Best European Independent Film 2010’. Alongside the film screenings, ÉCU organises a number of workshops led by industry professionals, including sessions on scriptwriting, editing, acting and directing, all of which are open to the public. In addition, festival-goers will have the chance to participate in Question and Answer sessions with some of the filmmakers and attend music events organised by Access Film-Music.
From Fri 12-Sun 14 Mar.
“Curtains”, directed by Julian Barratt & Dan Jemmett, is competing in ECU 2010’s European Dramatic Short category. Check out this teaser:
