“If you like films that delve into relationships intermixed with humour and drama, there are gems from France, Hungary, Sweden and Germany.

“ There are more poignant drama offerings from Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium and the Czech Republic, while Cyprus, Spain and Greece bring a Mediterranean slant.

“Poland and Romania have war as a backdrop to personal relationships, while the Dutch supply a lot of romance.

“Portugal has history in its sights as it delves into the life of Christopher Columbus.

“There is also a topical powerful British drama-documentary film on the effects of climate change seen from the viewpoint of life on earth in 2055, while the Finnish documentary looks at the practicalities of life for a family trying to go green and the impact it has on each of the family members.

“In short this festival has something for everyone.”
