China-EU Youth Short Film Festival

To boost the mutual understanding and friendship by further cultural events, the Mission of the People’s Republic of China to the European Union, in collaboration with the China Cultural Center in Brussels, will hold the China-EU Youth Short Film Festival on October 12, 2016. Screenings of a selection of 13 short movies will be presented at the China Cultural Center in Brussels, the University of Leuven, and Institut National Supérieur des Arts du Spectacle et des Techniques de Diffusion (INSAS) in Brussels.

Being part of the China Arts Festival in the EU (October to December 2016), the China-EU Youth Short Film Festival is organized in parallel with the second edition of the Chinese Film Festival.

A selection of  brilliant short films created by young Chinese college students and of outstanding short films from students of INSAS, Brussels, have been chosen to be part of the programmation for this very first edition. Young Chinese film directors and production teams will also be present to interact with the audience during the day. In this way, the willingness of the organizers is to provide common ground for exchanging ideas through film languages, and to provoke vibrant communication between the youth of China and Europe.

This event is free of charge and registration is not necessary to attend.
