Erasmus upholds the ideas of friendship, mutual respect, tolerance, curiosity, cooperation, honesty and perseverance. These are all manifested in the European Film Weeks 2017 programme as well. The films screened will tell us stories on themes such as multiculturalism, life-long learning and international relations. This time the programme features 25 inspiring films from all around Europe.
