Euregion Film Festival 2021

Het Euregion Film Festival 2021 heeft als centrale thema We'll See It Through. De covid19-pandemie heeft ons dagelijks leven nog steeds in haar greep. Ook het festival vindt daarom online plaats. Maar er gloort hoop. En we zullen sterker uit deze tijd komen, dat is zeker. 

Voor de officiële selectie van het Euregion Film Festival 2021 zijn 20 films geselecteerd in competitie. 12 hiervan strijden in de internationale competitie, 8 in de Euregionale competitie. Daarnaast is er een speciale Made in Heerlen-selectie, met recente films gemaakt in en/of over Heerlen. De complete lijst geselecteerde films vind je onder aan de pagina.

Euregion Film Festival 2021 vindt vanwege de onzekerheid rondom covid19 dit jaar online plaats. De Short Film Competition, Euregion Short Film Competition en Made in Heerlen films zijn voor een eenmalig bedrag van €5 een week lang te kijken. Na aankoop van je ticket ontvang je op 1 maart 10.00 uur een toegangslink  tot het viewing-platform. De Filmmakers Talks, CineTalks en Award Show zijn gratis online te volgen via onze Facebook-pagina en later terug te kijken via onze vimeo.
