The Gene Siskel Film Center welcomes you to the "18th Annual European Union Film Festival," a colorful and diverse European escape from the Chicago winter. This largest showcase in North America for the cinema of the European Union nations presents Chicago premieres of 61 new feature films from 27 nations, providing an in-depth portrait of Europe from east to west.
According to the tradition of our festival, the opening night is presided over by the nation currently holding the presidency of the European Union. On Friday, March 6, our host is Latvia's Honorary Consul in Chicago, Robert Blumberg. Our opening film is the delightful feature-length animation THE GOLDEN HORSE, based on a Latvian folk tale, and suitable for all ages.
