European film at Viddla

We celebrate Europe Day together with Härnösand's library

On May 9th, Europe Day is celebrated to commemorate the start of the European collaboration, which would later become the European Union. To draw attention to this, we want to present a number of quality films from EU member states in collaboration with the municipality of Härnösand, which has become one of Sweden's 15 Europe Direct Centers. The Europe Direct Centers aim to reach out to people in the member states and increase the sense of participation in the democratic process and the European cooperation.

Europe Day is celebrated in many different ways. It is a day off for the staff of the institutions of the Union. Many celebrate with cake or pastries and of course the EU flag is hoisted all over the Union. At Viddla, of course, we celebrate with film! Among the selected films, we find many gems. Several have been nominated for or won Oscars, the Palme d'Or at Cannes, the Golden Bear at Belin, and a number of other fine awards. Which will be your favorite?
