The 7th Eastern Neighbours Film Festival, November 4 - 14
4 November 2015
share info
Every November, Eastern Neighbours Film Festival (ENFF) presents the most recent and exciting films from East and South East Europe, mainly countries that are not yet members of the large EU family. 

The 7th edition starts today in The Hague, lasting till November 14. The program includes feature films, documentaries, short films and animations - most of the selected films are Dutch premieres. Each year the film program is accompanied by several side events, designed not only to educate but also to initiate new partnerships. The presence of prominent guests, actors, directors, producers and their direct communication with the audience makes ENFF a worthwhile event for every participant and cinemagoer. 

Enclave by Goran Radovanovic

At this year’s ENFF four submitted films to the 88th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film will have their Dutch premiere. From Albania the film Bota, a playful contemporary story that stands as a metaphor of Albania’s path to democracy. From Bosnia-Herzegovina the film Our Everyday Life, a compelling film about the daily struggle of a Bosnian middle-class family. From FYROM, Honey Night, an impressive psychological drama that stands out through meticulous direction and nuanced performance, and from Serbia the film Enclave, an antiwar film based on the eternal and edifying story about forgiveness and love. 

Lets have a look at the Balkan films participating in the festival΄s different sections:

Three Windows and a Hanging by Isa Qosja

The Focus: Between Rhetoric and Reality – 20 Years After Dayton program will be accompanied by a debate, where a panel gathering participants of different vocations, should outline some plausible answers to a number of questions: starting with the dramatic gap between popular expectations that marked the peace of 1995 and its results (or their absence) 20 years later.
