Artistic director welcome —

Europa! Europa 2024 brings some of the brightest talents and the biggest stars of European cinema to the big screen. We’ve scoured the globe for European gems that are wildly entertaining, heartfelt, and thought-provoking, showcasing compelling stories and new cinematic voices that you won’t see in your local multiplex.

Our program will transport some to familiar places, and others to exciting, unknown territories. Journey across the harsh Danish moor in The Promised Land, with Mads Mikkelsen at the helm in period garb; to the London office of Sigmund Freud in Freud’s Last Session, where the famous psychologist, played expertly by Anthony Hopkins, and author C.S. Lewis converge for a battle of wits over the existence of God; or relish stunning 4K restorations of the Italian masterpiece The Conformist and French master Jean Luc Godard’s Contempt

Another highlight of the third Europa! Europa is our Yorgos Lanthimos Retrospective. These six films from the master of the Greek Weird Wave typify the spirit of the festival, with wickedly funny and impeccably stylized takes on genres and stories we think we’ve all seen before. In the wake of Poor Things, experience the catalogue of Lanthimos’ work, showcasing cinema at its most surreal, provocative and entertaining.

Take the plunge and give yourself over to new experiences at Europa! Europa 2024.
— Spiro Economopoulos, Artistic Director
