European Union Film Festival

The annual European Union Film Festival returns to Hong Kong this February, so if you’re a fan of European cinema, you’re in for a treat: 16 award-winning titles will be screened at Broadway Cinematheque and AMC Pacific Place throughout the month, including the black and white drama “The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki,”, about the Finnish boxer vying for the 1962 world featherweight title. The film was given the gong of Un Certain Regard at the recent Cannes Film Festival. For the tail end of the festival, art-lovers might want to catch closing film “Cézanne and I” (pictured) about the camaraderie between the 19th century painter and renowned writer Émile Zola.
