Europe on Screen – one of the longest-running international film festivals in South East Asia – is coming back this year. Entering its 19th edition, this year’s festival will be held on 18-30 April 2019 in eight cities across Indonesia.
"The festival was again widely appreciated last year, welcoming more than 24,000 moviegoers and making it among the most well-attended film festivals in Indonesia and the region. This year, Europe on Screen returns with more screenings and more films: 277 screenings of 101 feature length and short films from 27 European countries," said H.E. Vincent Guérend, Ambassador of the European Union (EU) to Indonesia. "The festival also fosters cooperation between the European and Indonesian creative industries as growing economic sectors. For example, we are bringing some young European filmmakers to work with aspiring Indonesian artists," added EU Ambassador Vincent Guérend.
Europe on Screen has been an annual film fixture in six cities: Jakarta, Bandung, Medan, Denpasar, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. This year, Europe on Screen will debut in two additional cities: Bekasi and Tangerang.

The European Film Festival is a joint initiative of the European diplomatic and cultural representations in Indonesia. The festival was held for the first time in Indonesia in 1990, followed by the second in 1999. As of 2003, the European Film Festival in Indonesia has been held annually.
During the period of 2004 to 2006, the European Film Festival was featured as a section of the Jakarta International Film Festival (JIFFest). In 2007 it returned to its initial status as a stand-alone event and was rebranded under the banner “Europe on Screen” (EOS).
The EOS 2019 is the 19th European Film Festival. The EOS 2019 Festival Co-Directors are Ms Meninaputri Wismurti and Mr Nauval Yazid. The EOS Steering Committee is chaired by the EU Delegation to Indonesia.
