    Twelve movies from 12 European Union (EU) Member States were shown over seven days in four parishes, June 3 - 9, 2019, free of charge. The films covered a variety of issues including immigration, discrimination, love, women in sports, persons with disabilities and diversity among other themes.

    The festival opened on Monday, June 3 at the Spanish Court Hotel in St Andrew with a screening of Lukasz Palkowski’s 2014 film Bogowie (Gods), which follows the early career of cardiac surgeon Zbigniew Religa, who despite harsh reality of the 1980s Poland, successfully leads a team of doctors to the country's first human heart transplantation.

     

    EU Ambassador to Jamaica Malgorzata Wasilewska said the festival is a celebration of the richness and diversity of European culture. "Organising this important event takes a lot of hands and I am grateful for the support we have had to make this happen. The Missions of EU Member States are joint partners. In addition, we have had a lot of assistance from the EU Honorary Consuls in Jamaica".
