Have European roots but never seem to find the time to get back? Are you from Europe but drunk on New York water? Maybe you’re just into the Euro Culture. Whatever, the case is, we have your fix! Well, maybe not us but The European Union Delegation to the United Nations.
Starting this week, the group is bringing you Panorama Europe 2018, the tenth edition of the essential festival of new and vital European cinema, co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image and the members of EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture), includes fiction and documentary works that present a portrait of contemporary Europe during a period of tremendous flux.
