European Psychoanalytic Film Festival (epff12)

Open for booking!


The Twelfth European Psychoanalytic Film Festival (epff12)

15th - 17th November 2024

The theme of the festival is JOURNEY

In Person only at Royal Society of Medicine - 1 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 0AE

EARLY BIRD FULL FESTIVAL TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE UNTIL 8TH JULY


In our contemporary culture ‘journey’ seems to make regular appearances as a shallow cliché but it does evince concepts deeply rooted in human consciousness and human prehistory, ancestral themes now surfacing as currency in popular culture.

Journey evokes a multiplicity of associations that offer a broad canvas for the exploration of its representation in film from literal road movies and tales of migration to more interior voyages into the mind.

The etymology of ‘journey’ is originally from the Latin ‘diurnus’ / ‘diurnum’ meaning ‘daily portion,’ becoming ‘journée’ in French and arriving in Middle English as ‘journey.’   It is a concept deeply rooted in the human psyche and underpins universal narratives such as the ‘hero’s journey’ from ancient mythology to the latest video games.

A psychoanalyst’s daily work is structured around each patient’s internal journey. Film makers, whose creative process, itself a journey, produce a genre that is par excellence the portrayal of their characters’ journey through time, space, relationships, between countries and cultures.

The 12th European Psychoanalytic Film festival honours the tradition of bringing together film makers and psychoanalysts to discuss the resonance between our different but overlapping journeys.
