After two years of exclusively virtual screenings, Europe on Screen (EoS) is set to return in a hybrid format from June 16 to 30.

EoS this year features 69 films across various genres from 25 European countries, including Denmark, Greece, France, Germany, and Poland, as well as one Indonesian short film compilation that was selected from the festival’s annual competition, Short Film Pitching Project (SFPP).

A number of films in this year’s lineup have won awards in regional and international film festivals, or submitted as their country’s submissions for the Academy Awards’ Best International Feature Film category. Among them are films that capture the major issues faced by today’s global society, such as the pandemic, migration, and war. 

Screenings in the 22nd edition of EoS are divided into four sections, namely Festivities for feature fiction films; Realities for full-length documentaries; Specialties, which screens three Indonesian short films that won last year’s SFPP competition; and Retrospective, celebrating the 102nd anniversary of Federico Fellini’s birth with screenings of the legendary Italian director and screenwriter’s classics such as 8½ (Otto e mezzo) as well as Fellinopolis, a documentary that looks into the behind the scenes of his filmmaking.

There will also be Film Talks, consisting of Q&A sessions held via Zoom which will see participation of film directors whose works are screened at the festival, details of which along with the registration links can be found here.

As announced in the press conference and screening Coconuts attended recently, EoS will bring back their tradition of a surprise screening, which will take place on Friday, June 24 evening at GoetheHaus.

Offline screenings will run from June 16 to 26 in Jakarta, Bandung, Denpasar, Medan, Surabaya, and Yogyakarta. Screenings in Jakarta will take place at Erasmus Huis, GoetheHaus, Institut Français Indonesia (IFI), Istituto Italiano di Cultura (IIC), and SAE Institute Film School; while screenings in Bali will be held at Alliance Française Bali and MASH Denpasar.

You can also watch a selection of films online on Festival Scope from June 20 to 30. As always, all screenings and side events at EoS are free of charge.

The offline version of this year’s EoS will open on Thursday, June 16 with Dutch drama/thriller Do Not Hesitate (2021) by Shariff Korver and close with French comedy The Big Hit (2020) by Emmanuel Courcol on Sunday, June 26.

Keep an eye for updates from EoS on their Twitter, Instagram, and website, and you can find the festival program book here.
