Fifth Eurochannel Short Films Tour
Program 7 - Portrait of a Lady

The Eurochannel Short Films Tour is back for its fifth edition, with a special programming theme: European women with ... And God Created European Woman.

Just as there can be no single definition of woman, there is no single style, attitude, genre, or approach in this year's Eurochannel Short Films Tour. Viewers will come across both new and experienced filmmakers, who explore the subject of woman in comedy, horror, romance, drama, experimental film and animation. Women and their contributions to European society are the complex and diverse inspirations for this new edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour ... And God created Woman. Follow Eurochannel on a journey to celebrate European women.
