Chennai will host 24 European films from 5th to 14th April 2013, all in national languages with English subtitles. This year, the festival will be based on the theme “Celebrating Women”.

Women’s stories often remain untold, overshadowed by other happenings and matters. But today women are raising their voices with increasing persistence demanding to be seen and heard. This festival would like to join the chorus of voices and through the perspective of the heroines’ individual stories share the very different lives of women. The films showcase different aspects, nuances and sometimes even the hardships of being a woman. Some of them are comedies, some are dramas and some are unclassifiable just as life itself is. But in the end they narrate engaging stories that reach out to men and women alike, to young adults as well as to elders.
