10/28/2016 - Eurochannel’s Short Films Program 1 on November 1, 2016

The AFNWCT is pleased to announce it will once again co-sponsor with the Southbury Film Commission a Short Film Festival from Eurochannel’s 7th Annual Short Films Tour titled “My Dear Family” showcasing European culture and cinematographic heritage, the art of short films, with a rich programming of productions. Some are as short as 5 minutes and as long as 30 minutes.

The family has been the core of European society and the vital energy that moves countries and changes almost every aspect of life, from economics, to politics, to arts. The Seventh Eurochannel Short Films Tour will capture this familiar spirit and treat the viewers and cinema lovers with stories about families, their challenges and greatest accomplishments. The nuclear European family traditionally consisted of a married father and mother with several children, but today this is only one option among many. Despite the modern day variances, Europeans continue to value family ahead of friends, work, leisure time, politics and religion as the most important element in their lives. That is why, this new edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour will pay homage to its crucial importance.

Program 1, titled “The Kids are All Right” will be shown on Friday, October 28 at 7:00 pm at the AF Center in Southbury and repeating on Tuesday, November 1 at 1:00 pm, also at the AF Center.

In addition to a 12-minute comedy from France titled “Merci Marcus,” by filmmaker Marianne Viard, movies from the United Kingdom, Slovenia, Italy, Belgium and Austria will be shown.

Each film is shown in its original language with English subtitles. Brief discussions will be held between films to give time to the audience to give their reaction and ask questions.

ALL PROGRAMS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH A SUGGESTED DONATION OF $5. Please RSVP by calling 203-707-0710 with your name and the number of people attending as seating is limited.
