Austrian American Short Film Festival
With filmmakers Javier Loarte, Sara Stern, and Exa Zim in person
Presented in collaboration with the Austrian Cultural Forum New York
The Austrian American Short Film Festival is a new event featuring a wide range of artistically ambitious short films in many forms and genres—narrative, experimental, documentary, animation, hybrid—by promising young artists and filmmakers from Austria and the United States. The festival aims at introducing emerging Austrian talent to the New York audience, and to showcase American filmmakers in Austria. This program features this year’s prize-winning films, selected by a jury including Austrian filmmaker Jessica Hausner (Amour Fou), American director and producer Sara Driver (Sleepwalk) and Museum of the Moving Image Chief Curator David Schwartz.
