This May, save the date for the European Union Film Festival 2016
In its 26th edition, the European Union Film Festival 2016 (EUFF) presents 30 films from 10 to 22 May

Want to see Alicia Vikander in a Swedish film? Before her Oscar-winning performance as Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl, the 28-year-old was a favourite of Swedish playwright and film-maker Lisa Langseth, whom she worked with in Hotell (2013), one of her last non-English language films. At the EUFF, you'll be able to see Vikander in her role as a recovering control freak who enters group therapy. 

If you haven't seen French actress Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Inside Out, By The Sea) as a documenter, book a seat for Tomorrow (2015), a cinematic investigation into the alternative ways of living. Inspired by a study forecasting the possible extinction of mankind by 2100, Laurent and co-director Cyril Dion travelled to 10 countries to find reasons and solutions to major environmental issues facing the world. 

30 films from 30 countries across Europe will be screened, including those from the Netherlands, Ukraine, Latvia, Italy and Germany. 

EUFF will take place from 10 to 22 May at Golden Village Suntec City. For more information, click here
