EFF Integration You and Me was invited to Brussels by Marek Plura – the Member of the European Parliament. On 7th December 2016 EFF Integration You and Me presented a festival film review for the fourth time. The audience, including the European Parliament members watched the Chronicle of the 13th EFF Integration You and Me and 4 short films – ‘Without Barriers’ by Szymon Gądek (Poland 2016), ‘Michael’ by Piotr Januszkiewicz (Poland 2015), ‘Bla, bla, bla’ by Alexis Morante (Spain 2015) and ‘Minority Effect’ by Cesar ‘Most’ Perez (USA 2016).

– Disability may touch each of us. – stressed Marek Plura. – Therefore it is important to talk about the issues related to disability openly. The idea of the Festival is to talk about barriers and break them. Krzysztof Głombowicz, a sportsperson, a sport commentator and a friend of EFF Integration You and Me, appeared on behalf of the organizers of the Festival.
