EU KINOTEKA is film project that was launched in 2012 by the Delegation of the European Union and its Member States' Embassies in India. Kinoteka is a version of the EU Film Festival (EUFF) especially for Indian universities and colleges, with the purpose of familiarising Indian students with European film art, culture and languages. The films are screened in their original languages with English subtitles.

Best films are selected and provided by the EU Member States. The Delegation of European Union in India sends a set of these films in DVD format along with brochures and posters to different universities. The screenings are done in the university campus/auditorium.

Usually, the university nominates a contact person responsible for organisation of the Kinoteka (agreeing the dates of screenings, receiving/sending and screening of DVDs, etc.). Whenever possible, the screenings are accompanied with visit of EU Ambassadors and Diplomats from EU Member States who introduces the history, geography and culture of Europe to the students, showing how the Union has managed to bring about 'Unity in Diversity' as well as peace and prosperity to a continent that until the middle of the 20th century had been periodically ravaged by disputes and wars. They also highlight the dynamics of the EU-India relationship, including educational opportunities for university studies in Europe, and of course take question from enthusiatic students.

If your university is interested in participating in the EU KINOTEKA project, kindly let us know by contacting the EU Delegation or sending an email to
