European Union Film Festival 2010

European Union Film Festival 2010
The European Union Film Festival 2010 opens today at the Bangkok Art & Culture Centre, and will close on 31st October. (The venue of last year's Festival was damaged following the recent protests.) All screenings are free.

Craig McCall's documentary Cameraman: The Life & Work Of Jack Cardiff is this year's highlight, and is screening on 30th October. Cardiff directed films including Sons & Lovers and Scent Of Mystery, though he is most famous as the cinematographer of three films directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (A Matter Of Life & Death, The Red Shoes, and Black Narcissus). The documentary includes contributions from director Martin Scorsese and actor Charlton Heston, among many others.
