The European Film Festival is once again held in Khartoum for the ninth time. It has become an annual event that strives to build bridges between Europe and Sudan.

Switzerland will be screening the film ''Ma Vie de Courgette'' whose synopsis you can see below:

"Courgette is not a vegetable at all: he’s a brave little boy. When he loses his mother, he feels alone in the world. But that’s before he starts his new life at the children’s home and meets his new friends Simon, Ahmed, Jujube, Alice and Béatrice. They all have their own stories — stories as bitter as they are sweet. And then there’s Camille. When you’re 10 years old, there’s a lot to discover: having a group of friends, falling in love … And why not? After all, there’s a lot to be happy about."
