The film festival will also pay homage to legendary Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray, on his 100th birth anniversary, with the projection of his 1955 film Pather Panchali.

A special contemporary Indian section, curated by the Dharamshala International Film Festival, includes six films in four Indian official languages namely Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam and Bengali. The festival is organised by the Delegation of the European Union to India, member states and associate countries, in collaboration with Indian and European partners.

Commenting on the significance of the EUFF, HE Ugo Astuto, Ambassador of the European Union to India, said, “The 26th edition of the European Film Festival will provide viewers a window to Europe, taking them on a journey across the Continent through the eyes of our storytellers. The very positive feedback after our last edition has encouraged us to include again a section on classic masterpieces from both Europe and India. We hope you will enjoy the month-long festival.”
