RSVPs go live May 20!
EuroAsia Shorts 2019
EuroAsia Shorts proudly presents an annual week of short films from Europe, Asia, and the United States, screened at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington, D.C. Every night includes a cultural Q&A and discussion with experts, and several nights include special reception events! Join an international cinematic dialogue that is uniquely Washingtonian.
This Year's Theme: Youth
The theme for EuroAsia Shorts 2019 is Youth. Few things are as universal as youth, although how we experience it varies greatly. It can be full of hardship, hard lessons, mentors, monsters, love, dreams, or all of the above. The experience can also be just as vivid and lasting for a wide-eyed child, a young adult coming of age, digital natives navigating social media, international students, millennials facing a changing global workforce, and even those who simply remain young at heart. Regardless of place or generation, the emotional impact of our youth needs no translation.
About the Festival
Now in its 14th year, EuroAsia Shorts (originally the Asian-European Short Film Showcase) remains a collaboration between a small group of Washington, D.C. embassies and cultural center staff. Since 2006, the festival has presented more than 250 short films, including many award-winning shorts making their U.S. debut. Each year a broad variety of films and styles are presented, connected by a single theme. With post-film cultural Q&A’s and discussions with experts each night, EuroAsia Shorts offers an international cinematic dialogue that is uniquely Washingtonian.
In 2019, EAS saw a rare expansion of the festival, from 9 to 11 partner organizations. The two new countries added are Indonesia and Austria, represented by the Embassy of Indonesia and the Austrian Cultural Forum. Welcome to our new partners! Check out the links below for more on each of us and our many cultural programs beyond EAS.
