Malta participates in the EU Film Festival in India

Reference Number:  , Press Release Issue Date: Nov 26, 2020
 

In November 2020,  the European Union (EU) Delegation in India held the 25th edition of the EU Film Festival in India (EUFF). Marking it’s 25th year, the Film Festival is celebrating its Silver Jubilee edition, albeit virtually for the first time ever, due to the pandemic.


For this edition of the EUFF, the High Commission of Malta in New Delhi, has chosen to showcase a light-hearted short film by the name of Sunday (Il-Ħadd). This short comedy, written and directed by Bruce Micallef Eynaud, centres around a man from Gozo who is returning from a weekend conference on the main island, Malta. The man, a dentist by profession, recounts his trip to his wife. His recount reveals his ability of twisting the truth. The film stars actors Kris Spiteri and Manolita Grech.


The film is set in an authentic modern Malta. Sunday (Il-Ħadd), which was shot in Maltese with English subtitles, can be viewed via this link: https://www.festivalscope.com/film/sunday/. The film is available for viewing until the end of November 2020.

In this unique edition, the EUFF brought outstanding, award-winning films from across Europe, several of which have been acclaimed by the Film Festivals of Cannes, Locarno, Venice, Berlin and San Sebastian. The films that were showcased were intended to offer a window into the heart of Europe.


The High Commissioner of Malta in New Delhi, Mr Reuben Gauci, and Maltese Diplomat responsible for Culture at the High Commission, Ms Eugenie Megally, would like to thank Mr. Bruce Micallef Eynaud, Ms. Joyce Grech, Ewropa Kreattiva of Arts Council Malta, and the European Union Delegation to India and Bhutan in New Delhi, for their kind cooperation.
