'EuroAsia Shorts 2013'
A selection of short films from Europe, Asia, and the United States screened at embassies and cultural centers throughout Washington, D.C.
Now in its eighth year, EuroAsia Shorts began as the Asian European Short Film Showcase and remains an original collaboration between a small group of embassies and cultural center staff.
The festival has presented more than 170 short films since 2006, including many award-winning films making their U.S. debut. Each year presents a variety of films connected by a single theme with post-film discussions on the first four nights, offering an international cinematic dialogue.
The theme for EAS 2013 is The Future. From careers to love to the stars, the future is wrapped in uncertainty, and always on our minds in one form or another. Sometimes it is a source of anxiety; other times, wide-eyed wonderment. Whatever it holds, its promise is universal.
