The 27th European Union Film Festival (EUFF) heads to National Gallery Singapore this year with film screenings taking place at The Ngee Ann Kongsi Auditorium from 11 to 21 May 2017.
The 27th edition of Singapore’s longest running foreign film festival will showcase 27 films from 27 countries across Europe.
Families with young children can look forward to two films, an animated Ukranian feature, The Dragon Spell, and an Austrian film about the unlikely friendship of a young boy and an eagle, Brothers in the Wind.
Both films are in English and will be screened on 13 May 2017.
The Dragon’s Spell
This 2016 animated feature tells of a young boy, Little Nicky, who wants to be a dragon slayer like his father. He embarks on a quest to save the world of humans and world of magic from a witch possessed by a dragon’s ghost.
It is Ukraine’s first full-length feature film and directed by Manuk Depoyan.
Brothers of the Wind
Set against the breathtaking scenery of the Austrian alps, Brothers of the Wind is a family drama about a boy, Lukas, who saves an eagle. A heartwarming relationship develops between the boy and the bird, carrying with it a message of hope and discovery.
27th European Union Film Festival
2017 marks 60 years of the European Union. The EUFF brings together the Singaporean and European communities and opens up a space for cross-cultural dialogue.
This is further underscored by the EUFF’s move to the National Gallery Singapore this year.
