The Eighth Eurochannel Short Films Tour: A Touch of Happiness
Embark on a cinematic voyage you will never forget, with the greatest new exponents of European filmmaking. The Eurochannel Short Films Tour is back for its eighth edition, with a special programming theme: happiness!
The Eurochannel Short Films Tour has been a successful Eurochannel trademark for the last seven years. A unique event, the tour invites viewers to follow talented directors on an exciting exploration of Europe through short films: with the directors as guides, viewers discover fascinating cultures through the eyes of a filmmaker. Almost every European country and region is represented in this edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour - each of whose film is broadcast in its original language and subtitled in English - which is an example of the program’s creativity and dynamism.
On the Eurochannel Short Films Tour, viewers will enjoy a cinematic voyage through Europe, hear all its languages, and experience inspiring stories that will move them to reflect on a wide range of topics. This year, the Tour includes new regions such as Nova Gorica (Slovenia) and Nivelles (Belgium). Also, viewers will be introduced to cinematic adventures from the most charming countries such as France, the United Kingdom and Italy. Plenty of places to go, plenty of stories to enjoy… We propose only one question: how happy are you?
Happiness for the world to see
“Happiness depends upon ourselves,” said Aristotle. But while philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion, scientists have a more pragmatic approach with measurable indicators.
In this event, which pays tribute to the universal human striving for joy, Eurochannel has broken down its selection into 8 programs, as no single genre could have been left out. Dramas, comedies, animated productions, mini-documentaries, and experimental short films will deliver original stories that will move you.
The drive for happiness, and our search for peaceful coexistence, are the complex and diverse inspirations for this new edition of the Eurochannel Short Films Tour. Follow us on a journey to celebrate life, cinema, and of course… happiness!
