Ireland's films being offered include Michael Collins, My Left Foot, The Secret of Kells and Five Minutes of Heaven. These films display the culture, folklore and architecture of Ireland.

In the Italian Film Week, "For Sophia" premieres for the first time at the Shanghai Film Festival. The 1000 Euros Generation, Just Married and La Pirellina are trying to reach an equilibrium between commercial benefits and artistic creation.

My Mother's Tears from Germany is entered for the Golden Tripod Awards.

Five northern European countries; Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and Denmark are presenting 13 films, which, despite their own idiosyncrasies, share the same subject matter on family life.
