AASFF 2017: AWARD WINNERS AT MUSEUM OF THE MOVING IMAGE

SUNDAY JUN 04, 02:00 PM

The Austrian American Short Film Festival is an annual three-day festival presented by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York. The festival features short films in all forms and genres by promising young artists and filmmakers from Austria and the United States. The mission of the AASFF is to increase intercultural dialogue, to foster interconnectivity and the exchange of ideas between Austria and the U.S. by providing a platform for young, emerging filmmakers. The festival also aims at introducing emerging Austrian talent to the U.S. film community, as well as showcasing work by American filmmakers in Austria.

Following the festival at the ACFNY in March, the Museum of the Moving Image will host this special program showcasing the winning films on June 4th, as selected by the international jury headed by celebrated Austrian filmmaker and multimedia artist, Virgil Widrich (Copy Shop, Fast Film, Night of 1000 Hours):
