Having scoured the globe for European cinematic gems, Europa! Europa 2024 presents a handpicked selection of entertaining, heartfelt, and thought-provoking films from compelling storytellers and new cinematic voices.

Featuring 47 films from 28 countries, Europa! Europa celebrates the world’s best new European films over three jam-packed weeks filled with prestige European cinema and entertaining Australian premiere screenings.

OPENING NIGHT AND CENTREPIECE GALA SCREENING

In The Promised Land, Europa’s opening night screening and Denmark’s submission to the Academy Awards, viewers are transported to 1755 Denmark, where the impoverished soldier Ludvig Kahlen, played by Mads Mikkelsen, embarks on a quest to colonize the harsh Danish heath. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, this gripping tale weaves a land battle and an unexpected love story. Mikkelsen's powerful performance was awarded Best European Actor at the European Film Awards. The festival kicks off with this opening night film at 7pm, preceded by drinks at 6:15pm.

Freud’s Last Session (United Kingdom) brings to life the intellectual clash between Sigmund Freud, portrayed by Anthony Hopkins, and C.S. Lewis, played by Matthew Goode, over the existence of God. Directed by Matt Brown, this adaptation of Mark St Germain’s play breaks free from its stage roots, offering a dynamic exploration of London. Anchored by Hopkins' nuanced performance, the film is the Centrepiece Gala screening at the festival.

Both screenings are preceded by welcome drinks.

Tickets are on sale now at www.europafilmfestival.com.au.
