To be inaugurated on Friday at the British Council, the extravaganza will run till March 11.

Backed by the delegation of the European Union to India, embassies of member states of the European Union and organized with the help of local partners, the festival will travel from February until July 2014 from New Delhi to Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Goa, Jodhpur, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai and Kolkata.

"The selected movies showcase different stories of youth and the young. They are a collection of dreams and passion, fear and frustration, fun and joy, mistakes and recognition -- all things old and young for both the young and not-so-young," read a statement.

The opening movie, British comedy “Killing Bono”, directed by Nick Hamm, tells the story of two brothers who attempt to become global rock stars, but is left to only look on as their old school friends U2 become the biggest band in the world.

All films will be screened in national languages of member states of the European Union, with English subtitles.

Among them there are languages like Hungarian, Irish, Danish and Lithuanian - many of which the viewer may hear for the first time. All films portray Europe's diversity and its cinema tradition.

Entry to the festival is free, with seating on first-come, first-served basis.
