(28 June 2019) - This summer, European film classics will be screened in some of Europe's most iconic cultural heritage venues.
From tomorrow until the end of September, classic films from across the EU will be screened free of charge in a wide variety of venues in 13 EU countries – from small towns to capital cities – highlighting Europe's rich and diverse cultural heritage.
As part of the wider restoration and digitisation of heritage films, the event series “A Season of Classic Films” is supported by Creative Europe MEDIA programme.
Among the classic films to be screened throughout the season are some of the best-known titles in world cinema, including Fritz Lang's “Metropolis” (1927), Francois Truffaut's “The 400 blows” (1959), and “Cinema Paradiso” (1988) by Giuseppe Tornatore.
The iconic venues hosting the screenings include Aristotelous Square in Thessaloniki, Greece, Kilkenny Castle in Ireland, and the Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, Italy.
