STA, 3 May 2019 - The Europe Film Week will start on 4 May, featuring free screenings of 33 contemporary European films in twelve Slovenian cities and running until 13 June.

The screenings will be held all around the country, in Celje, Maribor, Murska Sobota, Nova Gorica, Sežana, Kranj, Novo Mesto, Dolenjske Toplice, Izola, Slovenska Bistrica, Ptuj and Ravne na Koroškem.

Altogether, 23 EU-funded films will be shown at 33 screenings, including the Icelandic-Ukrainian film Woman at War, which has received the Lux prize award of the European Parliament for 2018.

The film, directed by Benedikt Erlingsson, was also the winner of the 29th Ljubljana International Film Festival (Liffe). It presents the story of a determined woman who strives to protect the Icelandic highlands by disrupting the operations of a local aluminium plant.

Woman at War will be shown in Celje, Murska Sobota, Kranj, Sežana, Novo Mesto, Izola and Ptuj.

Nova Gorica and Sežana will hold screenings of the German-French film Transit by Christian Petzold, set in Nazi-occupied France, while film enthusiasts will be able to see the co-production film Cold War by Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski in Novo Mesto and Ptuj.

Erik Poppe's Utoya: July 22, a movie about the 2011 Utoya massacre, will be shown in Izola and Slovenska Bistrica.
