EU Short Film Festival and Tastes of Europe
Welcome to this year's EU Short Film Festival and Tastes of Europe. The festival kicks off on Thursday, May 28 and runs until Saturday, May 30 at the Saw Gallery, Ottawa.

This year the festival is presented together with the event Tastes of Europe. Before the screenings every night of the festival, visitors are welcomed to try some culinary delicacies displayed by the different EU nations. The food tasting starts at 6:00 PM, followed by the screening at 7:00 PM. On Friday, May 29, before the screening of the Swedish film, the Swedish Embassy will of course be there to give you a taste of Sweden.
The Swedish film is a short documentary telling the story of a special friendship: the one between a little boy and his aged grandfather. The Swedish Film Institute describes the film as "a world all on its own of humour, warmth and love"...
