European film weeks have a longstanding tradition in Eritrea. Every year a selection of European movies is screened in the country, using the language of cinematography to bring Europe closer to Eritreans. The 15th European Film Week was organised this year in Asmara from 19-26 October in the prestigious Cinema Asmara, and the week after, on 29-31 October in Mendefera at the National Union of Eritrean Youth & Students Hall. This year's film week was special, in the sense that the target audience of all 15 films was children. Among the them were animated films, such as 'Leo da Vinci' or 'Cat City'; true classics, like 'Robinson Crusoe'; and all time favourites, like 'Tintin'; just to name but a few. All films were contributed by Member States.
