The 16th edition of the European Union Film Festival
is being held from 23rd March to 3rd April at the Prasad Labs Preview Theatre. The festival, which has the slogan "Laugh Like a European", will screen 19 films mainly focusing on the theme of comedy.
As part of the festival, a Swedish film "Balls" (Farsan) will be screened on the second day.

Aziz (Jan Fares) is a middle-aged Middle-Eastern expatriate living in Sweden. Life treats him well: he likes his job, has good friends and is a splendid cook, and his son and daughter-in-law are soon to make him a grandfather. He is also an appreciated advice-giver to his pals from work ? Jorgen, who thinks his wife is cheating on him, and Juan, who is concerned with the failing health of his dog. However, when Aziz, a widower since many years, starts wooing women in the search for the perfect grandmother, not much goes his way.
