The first EUphoria Film Festival will open its wings on September 19,  2014, celebrating films from across the European Union. EUphoria is jointly produced by 14  Consulates of countries of the European Union, the USC School of Cinematic Arts (SCA) and  European Languages and Movies in America (ELMA). The festival will be held at the USC School of Cinematic Arts Complex in Los Angeles from September 19th - 24th, 2014. All screenings will be free and open to the public, except for the opening night ceremony and presentation of Pantelis Voulgaris’s Little England from Greece, which will be by invitation only.

The EUphoria Film Festival is an exciting opportunity to indulge in our passions for European cinemas, which have rich and unique heritages, much like the countries they represent.

The 2014 edition is comprised of feature length dramatic and documentary films from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Poland.

“Culture plays an important role in conveying European identity and values: liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and the rule of law,” said João Vale de Almeida, the EU Ambassador to the United States. “Since the EU's very beginning, we have been a community based on these common principles, which guide Member States and citizens as they live, work, and interact with each other, with neighbors, and with the wider world.
