The audience says en gaurd! The Canadian Film Institute (CFI) announces that the winner of the inaugural audience award for Ottawa’s 30th annual European Union Film Festival is The Fencer. The Fencer tops a popular and successful edition of EUFF as the CFI’s fest. The win for The Fencer, Estonian’s selection for the festival, caps off a great year for the fest, which enjoyed strong attendance in its first year at The ByTowne.
Toronto’s edition of EUFF previously announced the Dutch selection Admiral as the audience favourite, followed by Cats Don’t Have Vertigo (Portugal), 1944 (Estonia), Liza, the Fox Fairy (Hungary), and To See the Sea (Czech Republic.)
