Final preparations underway for ECU
A total of 67 films from 26 countries are in the line-up for the 5th European Independent Film Festival (ECU), to be held in Paris from March 12-14, 2010.
The event headed by Scott Hillier will show documentaries, animated films, shorts, experimental works and titles tackling environmental issues.
Narrative features include French director Jean-Claude Janer’s Sister Welsh’s Nights, unveiled in the Generation 14plus section at the Berlin Film Festival; Kris De Meester’s Four Roses (Belgium); Ventura Durall’s The Two Lives of Andrés Rabadán (Spain); and two German productions: Dreaming Mali by Barbara Kowa and Ayla by Su Turhan.
"The official selection line-up for ECU 2010 perfectly reflects the passion that drives independent cinema," said Hillier. "All these films are made by directors who are really passionate and totally committed to the production of their work. The films presented will remain imprinted on the audience’s memory for a long time due to the creativity and freedom of expression they convey."
