The event was opened by Ambassador Karl-Otto König, who highlighted the importance of the European Film production for our European identity.

The Festival itself, which took place from 16 to 22 May, consisted of 14 films, 5 of which were provided by HQ through the new (and welcome) Consortium, the remaining 9 obtained through the local EUNIC network and Member State Embassies.

This 7th edition was again held at the Movie Punta Carretas cinema complex at Montevideo’s Punta Carretas Shopping Centre.
