L’Europe autour de l’Europe Presents

L’Europe autour de l’Europe Film Festival (Europe By Europe) celebrated its 10th edi- tion this year. The festival runs every spring for one month in Paris, bringing together more than 150 films from all over Europe. Especially dedicated to promoting films from Europe’s periphery, L’Europe autour de l’Europe works to collaborate with other festivals, including but not limited to the Nordkapp Film Festival in Norway and the Golden Apricot Film Festival in Armenia. This year the festival is happy to collaborate with the Syros International Film Festival, on the other side of Europe, with the pres- entation of Maria Sahakyan’s film, I’m Going to Change My Name.
