17 European countries contribute to the European Film Festival Yangon 2018, including the Nordics.

The annual European Film Festival is the longest-running foreign festival in Myanmar. It aims to promote a cultural exchange between Myanmar and Europe while showcasing the diversity of European cinema.

Speaking at a media briefing in Yangon, H.E. Kristian Schmidt, Ambassador of the European Union to Myanmar, said:
“We hope that the European Film Festival will show our guests that underneath our cultural differences, we all have a shared humanity.”

These Nordic movies will be shown:
Land of Mine (Denmark), Little Wing (Finland), The Wave (Norway) and A Serious Game (Sweden).

The European Film Festival Yangon 2018 takes place from 21-30 September, and film screenings are open to the public free-of-charge at the Goethe Villa and Nay Pyi Taw Cinema.
