EU Film Festival

The EU Film Festival is being held for 11th time this year in India.It is held once in every two years. Just wondering how i wasn't aware of this in the past. Anywayz, a very good collection of movies are being screened at the festival to promote socio-economic and cultural interaction between EU and India.

By the way, there is no entry fee for the festival. Still wondering how a ticketless event promotes economic interaction?? [:D]

The Turkish Connection [:D]

The movies on the first day were Kebab Connection and Under the Stars. While the first one was a romantic comedy between a turkish guy who wants to direct the first kung-fu film in germany and a german girl who is fond of theatre. The second was about a young greek survivor of the turkish invasion who visits his village to re-collect his childhood memories.

Did u notice the turkish connection??
