Month of European Film 2023 in Chisinau

Month of European FIlm

In November, the best European films produced in 2023 will be screened in Chisinau. For the first time, one of Europe’s most important cinematographic events arrives in the Republic of Moldova.

Starting this year, our country joins the “Month of European Film” project. As a result, Chisinau joins over 45 European cities where the public will have the opportunity to watch films that have participated at international film festivals such as Cannes, Berlin or Locarno, including films that won the main awards! Among them is this year’s winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

As the main information center of the European Union in Moldova, Europe Café is the co-organizer of the event and invites the public to get to know European culture and cinematic art form.

Screenings will take place every week, on Fridays and Sundays, starting November 3, 2023, at the Cineplex Loteanu cinema. On November 1, 2023, Europe Café will host the press conference dedicated to the event.
