Over the last decade, the Eurochannel Short Films Tour has been a successful Eurochannel trademark. A unique event, this one-of-a-kind program invites viewers to follow the most gifted directors on an exciting exploration of Europe through the art of the short film. With these filmmakers as guides, viewers discover fascinating stories, culture and entertainment through the eyes of a director. Nearly every European country takes part in this edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour ― with each film, broadcast in its original language and subtitled in English, serves as an example of the creativity and dynamism of modern European cinema.
On the Eurochannel Short Films Tour, viewers will relish a cinematic voyage through Europe, hear its languages, and discover inspiring stories that will move them to reflect on a wide range of topics, all centering around the concept of togetherness. Plenty of places to go, plenty of stories to enjoy . . . We only have one question to ask: how happy are you?
Together We Stand
Togetherness is an extremely important aspect of life. It unites us, gives us security, much-needed support, a sense of belonging, and encourages us to love one another.
In times when conflict arises across the world, attempting to divide and categorize us, we should aim to stand together. Despite the trends of worldwide leaders attempting to divide us with walls, economics or their own views. Despite conflicts spreading across many countries, making families separate in search of a promising future, despite all attempts to categorize us by our incomes . . . it is in the worst of these scenarios that we discover that standing together is when we see the best of humanity. The Eurochannel Short Films Tour explores different motives for and approaches to togetherness.
In the Eurochannel Short Films Tour, viewers will discover a curated collection of short cinematic masterpieces that use a variety of dazzling stories to reflect a sense of togetherness. Through uplifting narratives that explore what makes people come together, talented directors and actors will prove why their works have been awarded at the most important film festivals for short films in the world.
In this Ninth Eurochannel Short Films Tour, every program will present different aspects of togetherness: people whose purpose is to begin a new life, and others who represent help or an obstacle; people living in a reversed world; love connections that are difficult to maintain; two individuals who are always stronger together; teenagers encountering adulthood for the first time, through different characters and friends.
Let’s Dream Together.
It is appropriate, in the times we currently live in, to reflect on our roles in society and how we can help one another. Being together as a community will change our lives and shape our future. We invite you to come with us, together, to enjoy a new edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour, because as John Lennon once said: “a dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”
