In two weeks the 14th annual European Union Film Festival kicks off at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago. The festival will run from March 4th-31st, and features 64 films from 24 countries.
The festival includes 9 films that represented their countries in the competition for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar at the Academy Awards.
Also featured is a film I mentioned in a previous post, Two in the Wave, a documentary on the friendship between Godard and Truffaut.
Unfortunately, it's unlikely we'll get to see the documentary but we do plan a quick trip to Chicago for a few films. If you make it for any part of the festival let us know what you saw.
