Festival EUROCINE 2017 @ Various
Mar 29 all-day

Festival EUROCINE 2017Festival EUROCINE 2017 is a yearly event brings an exquisite selection of films from the old continent that depict modern European society from different angles and through all genres. Created over two decades ago by the embassies of some European countries in Bogotá, the festival’s audience has grown steadily making it an unmissable occasion for the local film lovers not only in the capital, but in most of Colombia’s main cities.

There will be a total of 47 films from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the Czech Republic, as well as films from Bulgaria and Hungary.

For the first time, Bogotá will have a EUROCINE ‘sister city’ this year, as the cultural centre in Cajicá opens its doors for a selection of film screenings.

Each year, Eurocine chooses a country as guest of honour, highlighting some of its best recently released titles. The guest country of this year’s edition will be (surprise, surprise) France! There will be 12 films and a retrospective about French director, François Ozon.

La Dama de Negro

Spooking audiences in London’s West End since 1987, Susan Hill’s eerie thriller The Woman in Black / La Dama de Negro arrives this month to test the nerves of Bogotá theatre-goers. In a Spanish translation by director Rafael Perrín, the audience is drawn into the supernatural secrets of a small English village.

The minimalist Mexican cast – “Two actors and a ghost!” – includes the translator himself. After success in Mexico, Spain and the US, La Dama de Negro makes its Colombian premiere this month at Park Way’s Casa E theatre.

A welcome change from more predictable comedy and drama fare, its play-within-a-play format holds added interest. Do you dare?

The main outdoor plaza

Theatron, the biggest gay club on the continent, is one of the largest clubs in all of Latin America. It is housed inside an old cinema building, and is truly enormous with 13 different rooms to choose from playing everything from techno to salsa, rock to reggaeton. Dress up, or don’t, as one of the best things about this megaclub is the easy-going, non-judgemental air about the place. Open from Thursday to Sunday, Saturday night (open bar until 2am) draws massive crowds who dance their socks off till the sun comes up the following morning. One of the best nights out in Bogotá, gay or straight, a trip to the city would not be complete without a visit to Theatron. It has to be seen to be believed!
