The European Union Film Festival (EUFF) returns for its 29th edition, reflecting the diversity of perspectives, histories and cultures from across Europe. Featuring the best of contemporary European cinema, the 29th EUFF runs from 10 to 19 May 2019 at the National Gallery Singapore.

The 29th EUFF presents 27 films from across Europe with Romania as the featured country this year. The festival opens with Beside Me, Romania's first inspirational story. The Festival continues EUFF's long tradition of collaborating with a Singaporean film school. Partnering for the fifth time with Ngee Ann Polytechnic's School of Film and Media Studies, the EUFF features short films by students and alumni of the school alongside the official film selection.

Films screened are recent and have encountered success in their country of origin. The films showcased in this festival may belong to a specific country, but they are all representative of Europe's common cultural heritage. This film festival, now in its 29th year, is a window into the intriguing world of European cinema but also offers a platform to showcase films by young Singaporean film-makers.
