“Sundance” on the Seine

7 parnassiensThink of it as Sundance for Europe. Ecu, the European Independent Film Festival, brings cinema from all over the world to Paris from April 8 – 10. Think of these films as the antidote to Batman vs. Superman nonsense. And, just like its Park City spiritual forebear, this festival counts parties as an integral part of the fun.

Shorts and features will unspool from Estonia, Lebanon, Slovakia and, yes, the US and France. Daylong passes are just 15 euros, a weekend pass goes for 25 euros, and all festival guests are invited to the awards ceremony on April 10. The fest takes place at the 7 Parnassiens, a trio of cinemas in the 8th, 9th and 14th arrondissements.

Get ramped up for the fun by spending some time on the Film Channel run by Ecu, featuring movies and shorts from fests past.
