2022 AFI European Union Film Showcase
December 1–20

The best of European cinema…without the jet lag.

Now in its 35th year, the AFI European Union Film Showcase continues its tradition of bringing the best in European cinema to Washington, DC-area audiences. This year's lineup features 56 films representing all 27 EU member states, including award winners, regional box-office hits, debut works by up-and-coming talents and new works by leading auteurs, plus 19 of the top contenders for this year's Academy Award® for Best International Feature Film and 12 U.S. and North American premieres.

Opening Night: CORSAGE (Austria), Marie Kreutzer's sumptuous period drama about legendary monarch Empress Elizabeth "Sisi" of Austria, for which actress Vicky Krieps won the Un Certain Regard Best Performance award at this year's Cannes Film Festival. CORSAGE recently took the top prize for Best Film at the BFI London Film Festival and is Austria's official Oscar® submission for Best International Feature Film.

Closing Night: U.S. premiere of THE GREEN PERFUME (France), Nicolas Pariser's Cannes-premiered, Hitchcock-inspired, comedic whodunit starring Vincent Lacoste and Sandrine Kiberlain as an unlikely duo who embark on an international adventure of political intrigue in the wake of an unsolved murder.
