Panorama Europe 2019

Image : "Retour à Bollène" directed by Saïd Hamich

The eleventh edition of Panorama Europe, the festival of new and vital European cinema, co-presented by the Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) and the members of European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), includes fiction and documentary works that present a portrait of contemporary Europe during a period of tremendous flux. If there is a unifying thread in the diverse, exciting array of films in this year’s selection, it is a focus on the myriad of ways that the pressures and anxieties of modern life filter down into the most intimate aspects of personal identity. While the films tackle such macro subjects as politics, history, labor, and feminism, they do so with stories that focus microscopically on the lives of individuals.

The festival features the works of established directors as well as first-time and emerging artists. Here are the French productions and coproductions featured in this year’s edition of Panorama Europe.
