The Austrian American Short Film Festival (AASFF) is the first ever bilateral festival featuring short films in all forms and genres by promising young artists and filmmakers from both Austria and the United States. Set to take place annually, the three-day festival is both presented and hosted by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York (ACFNY), and the selection of winning films will be screened at Anthology Film Archives, New York, Museum of the Moving Image (MOMI), New York, and the frame[o]ut Festival, Museums-Quartier, Vienna. In addition, the AASFF collaborates with the NYC Independent Film Festival on special screenings.

 

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 discussions, Q&As, master classes 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
