EuroAsia Shorts

EuroAsia Shorts proudly presents a free annual week of short films from Europe, Asia, and the United States, presented by embassies and cultural centers based in Washington, D.C. Every program includes a series of shorts followed by cultural Q&A and discussion. Some nights include special content or events! Join an international cinematic dialogue that is uniquely Washingtonian. The 2022 festival is a mixed format, with some programs streaming online and some in-person at unique embassy venues. 

2022 Theme: The Art of Life
 

The theme for EuroAsia Shorts 2022 is The Art of Life. Life, like progress, definitely does not proceed in a straight line. The never-ending challenge of balancing, enjoying, and dealing with life is an art form, both universal and futile in our attempts to master it. There is no perfect path, partner, or recipe, and yet we seek and celebrate them in life just the same, against all odds and no matter the hardship. This year’s EuroAsia Shorts is about the inseparability of the good, the bad, and the ugly in life, and how every life lived well can be its own masterpiece.

​About the Festival​​​​​

 

Now in its 16th year (2022), EuroAsia Shorts (originally the Asian-European Short Film Showcase) remains a collaboration between a small group of Washington, D.C. embassies and cultural centers. Since 2006, the festival has presented more than 300 short films, including many award-winning shorts making their U.S. debut. Each year a broad variety of films and styles are presented, connected by a single theme. With post-film cultural Q&A’s and discussions with experts each night, EuroAsia Shorts offers an international cinematic dialogue that is uniquely Washingtonian.

The 2022 festival represents 10 countries. Check out the links below for more on each partner organization and our many cultural programs beyond EAS.
