Georgia’s ‘Golden Eye’ among 27 European Film Festivals You Won’t Want To Miss In 2017
In just about every respect, film festivals are the events of the season. Star-studded and internationally renowned, they are your ticket into “what’s in” on the festival circuit — not to mention what people will be talking about for months to come. Oh, and who can forget the parties? If you can manage to snag a ticket, only lavish, booze-filled bliss awaits…

Then again, not every film festival is created equal, and there’s no point in spending your time chasing
after subpar entertainment. Though that won’t be a problem here.

Europe is — and will forever be — the mecca for film and festivals alike. In fact, the first major film festival was held in Venice around 1932, and followed shortly by the emergence of Cannes in 1946. Needless to say, Europeans have a long, storied history of celebrating cinema, while throwing attendees the event of a lifetime.

So, how do you pick the right one? If you’re a sci-fi nerd, general cinephile, or simply looking for a legendary time, narrowing down what’s perfect for you can sometimes prove to be difficult. That’s why, after months of research and interviews, Flight Network has compiled the ultimate list of 27 European film festivals worthy of your time and admiration.

Each and every festival on this list is sure to be a hit in 2017, and we have a feeling you’ll want to take a gap-year just to cover all of the necessary ground.

The Festival

Calling all moviemakers and film professionals alike. The International Festival of TV and Movie Cameramen, or the “Golden Eye” festival, is dedicated to the cinematic geniuses that make films possible. Located in the cobblestoned capital of Tbilisi, Georgia, “Golden Eye” is unique in its celebration of both amateur and professional camera operators who hail from over 100 countries in the world.

Know Before You Go

After winding your way down the anarchic streets of Tbilisi, colored pink by the setting sun, you’ll come upon the annual wonders of Golden Eye. The festival offers everything from cinema master classes to presentations from the world’s leading camera equipment manufacturing companies, as well as a host of free screenings for audience members.

Think of this as the perfect excuse to finally book that long-awaited trip to Georgia — or the push to submit your film, currently gathering dust in storage. To learn more, visit the Golden Eye website.
