The European University Film Award is a unique opportunity for our students to get a deeper knowledge on European cinema, while improving their multilingual skills. Recovering the old tradition of European cine-clubs, it creates a space for young people to reflect and debate openly on contemporary cinema, and contributes to their appreciation of the act of watching films as a communal and social practice; a space for bringing together education, enjoyment, and exchange. /av
