The 6th edition of Made in Europe film festival



From 5 to 10 April 2011 Maastricht and Genk will be the heart of the 6th edition of the Made in Europe Film Festival. Other locations will be the movie theaters of Heerlen, Sittard and Roermond after which the festival will go to Aachen. In this German city Made in Europe is part of the cultural activities surrounding the Karlspreis.

Beware of the Poedel




Made in Europe is an initiative of Film Theater Lumière Maastricht. With a great selection of European movies the festival wants to show – from the international location of the Euregion (South Limburg, Liège, Belgian Limburg and Aachen) – the cultural diversity of Europe. This outspoken choice for Europe fits perfectly within the European identity and ambitions of Maastricht. As birthplace of the Euro and located near three borders, the city is submitting its candidacy for European Capital of Culture in 2018. Made in Europe is not a mishmash of premiers and red carpet events, but it is an actual cultural event that supports this candidacy. The festival shows both mainstream European cinema and the movies of more artistic European filmmakers. Working together across borders – unique in the Dutch film world – is thereby obvious.

The cultural diversity of the festival movies reflect this international cooperation. With special attention for small, personal films from every corner of the continent, the festival offers an intriguing image of the wealth and diversity of the European (film) culture. Together the festival presents around forty titles in a noncompetitive setting. There is room for lesser known filmmakers and upcoming talents, but there is also space for engaging mainstream films and movies from famous directors. People can already look forward to the Flemish success film ADEM, a new film with Millennium star Noomi Rapace and new work from Susanne Bier, Carlos Saura and Ferzan Ozpetek.

Genk is this year, after a careful start in 2010, a real partner of Made in Europe. Genk’s C-mine was an old mine building which has now been turned into a booming cultural center. C-mine pays special attention to directors with a Mediterranean background. In Maastricht Film Theater Lumière will stay as the main location.
