Head of the European Union (EU) Delegation Ambassador Mikael Barfod whet the appetites of film lovers with the screening of the British film About Time when he hosted a cocktail reception last week to mark the beginning of this year’s European Film Festival.

The five-day festival saw films from throughout the EU being shown, some with subtitles, others in English, representing the creative talents of producers from countries like Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands.

Accredited diplomats, as well as honorary consuls representing several of the countries, were among guests at the cocktail reception, at which Minister of Education Ronald Jones spoke briefly.
