EuroAsia Shorts 2021

Euroasia 2021


Eleven countries. Six programs. One medium.


Celebrating 15 years of short films from Asia, Europe, and the United States, presented in Washington, D.C. and online throughout the United States

Fri., June 4 - Fri., June 11, 2021 | Country Pairing Programs

Fri., June 11 - Fri., June 18, 2021 | Festival Closing Program


After a brief hiatus in 2020, EuroAsia Shorts (EAS) returns in 2021 with a new online streaming format and more incredible short films from Asia, Europe, and the United States, presented by embassies and cultural centers based in Washington, D.C., available free to viewers across the United States, June 4-18.

Each of six shorts programs is tied together by the festival theme, Together in Dreams, and includes post-film discussions and special video messages from directors. Join an international cinematic dialogue that is uniquely Washingtonian as we celebrate 15 years of EAS in 2021!


As in 2019, when the festival expanded to represent 11 countries, EAS features five pairing programs, available to stream simultaneously during the festival’s first week, June 4-11. Each program showcases an hour of films from two countries – one Asian and one European – followed by a wide-ranging discussion with guest speakers from culture and film. The sixth, final EAS program, as always, features one film from every represented country, including the United States, and a final discussion of the overall festival and theme. This program will be available during the festival's second week, June 11-18. All films are presented with original audio and English subtitles (as needed).


A complete lineup of shorts and country pairings can be found here. Italy’s selections for the country pairing program with the Republic of the Philippines are Home Sweet Home by Andrea Zuliani (15’) and Krenk by Tommaso Santi (14’55”). Our selection for the final EAS program is Andava tutto bene (We were good together) by Paolo Fulvio Mazzacane (14’).
