All seven European movies will be subtitled in Bangla to eliminate the barriers of languages. This festival will unfold a new chapter in the EU's cultural exchange with Bangladesh and further shed light on vital issues such as education and skill development, climate change adaptation, food and nutrition security, good governance, safe migration and sustainable reintegration of refugees, empowerment of women and girls: EU's priorities for development cooperation in Bangladesh.

A dedicated website (www.beuff.org) was launched on June 9 to allow the audiences access to all films and other information related to the festival. The festival's side events will also include masterclasses, questions/answer sessions with directors, discussions on gender representations in cinema, having a strong focus on women's issues and climate change.
