Cross border love between a young girl from Vienna and a Chinese police cadet; an 11-year old boy searching for his identity; and glimpses into the life of a manic depressive are some of the stories that will unfold at the 13th European Union Film Festival (EUFF) in Delhi.

c9928326-fcc9-11dc-8a5a-000b5dabf613.flv“The EU’s relation with India is a dialogue between two equal partners and culture plays an important role in this evolving relationship. Culture in itself has many functions, but most importantly it also serves as a bridge between these two culturally diverse entities," says Alexander Spachis, minister counsellor, EUFF.

The festival brings movies from 20 countries across Europe to five cities in India—New Delhi, Pune, Kolkata, Chennai and Kochi. “Most of these films have won awards. From thrillers, comedies and forceful modern-day dramas, there is something for everyone," says Spachis.

The highlight of the festival this year is that most of the films are contemporary European, instead of classics and old films.

The festival will be held from 1 to 30 April. For more information visit http://www.delind.ec.europa.eu/en/euff2008.
