“Easy living” – the comic-melancholic drama which tells the story of a 14-year-old kid and his friends who try to help an illegal migrant, was the first film to be screened on the first night of the European Film Festival in Kosovo. The film gathered numerous film lovers at Europe House in Pristina, who enjoyed the Italian comic drama, directed by Orso and Peter Miyakawa.
The fourth edition of the festival which was organized by Europe House Kosovo and supported by the European Union in Kosovo brought renowned European films which were chosen from the rich database of CineEuropa. Vedat Shehu – Event Manager at Europe House Kosovo, who was involved in the selection of the films, says that they tried to bring to the Kosovar audience films that discuss common social issues.
“The films that we chose to screen from CineEuropa, discuss universal and existential topics such as love, life, and death, but also common concerns that all we as citizens of the world face today such as migration, unemployment, violence in the family and society and others” – says Shehu.
On the three remaining nights film lovers at Europe House Pristina, Cultural Center ‘7 Arte’, and Europe House in North Mitrovica, had the chance to watch the films: “My thoughts are silent”, “Her Job”, and “Even mice belong in Heaven.”
As part of its ongoing efforts to support culture in Kosovo, the European Film Festival in Kosovo is supported by the European Union in Kosovo.
