The UN Office in Baku has announced a contest in connection with the European Film Festival held in the capital city.

“The 6th European Film Festival, which took place in cooperation with the EU Embassies accredited in Azerbaijan and Park Cinema from 29 October until 6 November, was the most successful one in its history with about 3500 active visitors,” the UN Office said.

This year’s film festival showcased the diversity of cultures in the EU: films from 18 different European Union countries in a great variety of languages – a record number in our six-year tradition. Due to the high interest to the festival the tickets were handed out in very short time and almost all cinema halls were full.

The festival organizers announced that they would like to draw the public attention to the price winning competition devoted to this year’s festival.

Those who like to participate in the competition should write a brief film review under their favorite film poster, where they should explain why they voted in favor of this particular film.

There will be selected two authors of the most meaningful reviews, who will receive travel packages to the Berlin International Film Festival “Berlinale” in February 2016. The competition will continue until November 20, 2015.

The EU Delegation will also announce the best film of the festival. The film, which will receive the most comments and “likes” will be selected as the best one.

The European Film Festival has been held in Baku since 2010 and serves to further build and strengthen the cultural links between the countries of the European Union and Azerbaijan, contributing to a better mutual understanding.

This year the films – representing various genres like comedy, drama, documentary, animation made the Festival attractive to all film lovers.
