Europe Now! is now at Karlovy Vary
Ten European Films were presented as part of Variety’s Critics’ Choice: Europe Now programme for the tenth time at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
Chosen by the critics of the US trade paper, the ten titles are supported by European Film Promotion, who invited the filmmakers to present their works in person yesterday and today at a special cocktail and party and, of course, to the eager festival-goers.
