L’Europe autour de l’Europe - European film Festival Paris will run from April the 8th to the 22nd 2025 in Paris and Île-de-France.
Its selection presents art-house and author films produced or coproduced by at least one country of Greater Europe (members of the Council of Europe) focusing on connections between classic European filmmakers and new talents of contemporary cinema. One of the festival's main objectives is to strengthen the creative audiovisual industry network across Europe.
In addition to screenings and Q&A with filmmakers, the Festival presents public masterclasses and panel discussions with prestigious guests from Europe.
L'Europe autour de l'Europe is where the new European film meets the European value-keeping cinema.

The authors of the best film in each competition category ( Prix SAUVAGE, Prix PRESENT, Prix SAUVAGE CORTO, Prix LUPETO) are awarded with a Dancing Wolf statuette, the symbol of the Festival.

Prix LUNA is awarded by the jury of cinema students and young professionals to the best film of the feature competition in parallel with the Prix SAUVAGE.

We accept submissions of films produced or coproduced by one or more european country (members of the Council of Europe).

- Features (60’ and more) never released in France, produced in 2023 or later.

- Documentaries (60’ and more) produced in 2023 or later.

- Shorts films (fiction, documentary, animation, experimental) up to 30' in length, and have been produced in 2023 or later.

- If you think your film fits our program perfectly but doesn't match the criteria of length and/or year of production, we invite you to submit it for one of our non-competition sections: THEMA, Vie Sauvage or Salon experimental. We will consider it.

  • L'Europe autour de L'Europe is an arthouse festival extremely well curated. You can tell it was founded by a filmmaker because it has that spirit and there's a lot of respect for the craft and for the director's vision.
    The screenings were in the center of Paris, just a few steps from L'Arc de Triomphe, which makes the whole experience even more special.
    Ivanka translated and adapted the english subtitles to french so well and with so much care.
    I recommend this festival to filmmakers and I'm so grateful and thankful to have been a part of the 2024 edition with my film "L'Incidente".
