The 29th edition of the Ottawa edition of European Union Film Festival wrapped up on 30 November with the screening of Dutch film Promised Land. The event also featured speeches by European Union Ambassador Marie-Anne Coninsx and Dutch Ambassador Cees Kole.

Dozens European film lovers packed the auditorium at 395 Wellington St. for the final screening of this year's festival. In concluding remarks, Ambassador Coninsx thanked the audience and all those who make this festival a great success year after year.

"I truly feel that each film is very precious, each film had something memorable to offer, a world to discover, a story to tell, maybe an experience, you never expected," Ambassador Coninsx said.

The EU Film Festival featured films from nearly all EU Member States and special guest filmmakers from Slovakia and Latvia. This year's edition also marked the EUFF's historic 500th screening with Slovenian film Chefurs Raus! on 23 November.

Looking forward to the festival's 30th anniversary in 2015!
