Panorama Europe 2018, the tenth edition of the essential festival of new and vital European cinema, co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image and the members of EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture), includes fiction and documentary works that present a portrait of contemporary Europe during a period of tremendous flux. Highlighting recent films from throughout the continent, several of the films explore dialogues between the historic upheavals of the twentieth century and the current moment. Highlights include festival opener The End of Fear with director Barbara Visser in person and followed by an opening reception; Lithuanian film Miracle introduced by film critic Lukas Brasiskis; and Gregory Markopoulos's The Iliac Passion.
Panorama Europe’s tenth year coincides with the European Year of Cultural Heritage, an initiative to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
