Marcia Nasatir & Anne Goursaud are thrilled to be joining the Austrian American Short Film Festival as Jury Members for their 2018 festival held in New York City, each hosting an educational masterclass with an official screening of A CLASSY BROAD set for March 28th.
The Austrian American Short Film Festival (AASFF) is the first of its kind bilateral festival featuring short films in all forms and genres by promising young artists and filmmakers from both Austria and the US. Taking place for the third year in a row, the festival is again presented by and taking place at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York City (ACFNY). An independent Jury selects the best Austrian and American films in the following categories: Narrative/Experimental, Conceptual/Documentary, and Hybrid. The winning films will be screened at Anthology Film Archives, New York, MOMI Museum of the Moving Image, New York and at the frameout-Festival, Museums Quarter, Vienna.
The festival program reflects the diversity and showcases the highlight of contemporary young filmmaking from both countries. The mission of the AASFF is to increase intercultural dialogue – to foster interconnectivity and the exchange of ideas between Austria and the U.S. Featuring talks, Q&As and networking events, the festival provides a platform for young, emerging filmmakers and serves as an incubator for new ideas and projects, encouraging Austrian-American collaboration. 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.
The Festival was initiated and co-founded by Christine Moser (ACFNY Director) and Stephanie Falkeis (AASFF Festival Curator). Stephanie is pictured here with Marcia and Anne.
