The American Austrian Foundation seeks to bridge the knowledge gap by providing qualified individuals with fellowships to pursue postgraduate education in medicine, media and the arts.
The AAF's fellowship programs, initially offered to Americans and Austrians, now include participants from more than 100 countries worldwide. The AAF conducts its own programs and oversees joint programs with American, Austrian and international organizations.
In 1984, a group of Americans and Austrians interested in fostering closer relations between the United States and Austria established The American Austrian Foundation (AAF). The AAF has grown from a bilateral initiative to a multilateral, international institution partnering with non-governmental organizations (NGO’s), governments and individuals, directed by committed board members in the United States and Austria.
Austrian American Short Film Festival
The Austrian American Short Film Festival (AASFF) is the first ever bilateral festival featuring short films in all forms and genres by promising young artists and filmmakers from both Austria and the United States. The mission of the AASFF is to increase intercultural dialogue – to foster interconnectivity and the exchange of ideas between Austria and the U.S. Featuring discussions, Q&As, master classes and networking events, the festival provides a platform for young, emerging filmmakers and serves as an incubator for new ideas and projects, encouraging Austrian-American collaboration. The festival also aims at introducing emerging Austrian talent to the U.S. film community, as well as showcasing work by American filmmakers in Austria. An international Jury selects the best films. Awards will be given in the categories ‘Narrative’ and ‘Experimental’, to one Austrian and one American filmmaker per category, respectively.
