The Delegation of the European Union to Sudan announced the launching of the eighth edition of the European Film Festival on Saturday 19th November 2016.
This year the festival brings 20 films from 18 European countries including: Austria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal,Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the European Union.
On 10 December, the European Union and its Member States celebrate Human Rights Day. As inequality and violations of human rights pose increasing challenges across the world, and conflict continues in countries such as Syria, it is all the more important that we redouble our efforts to defend the rights of all people. This is why this year we join the United Nations in calling upon people to stand up for someone's rights.
