We are pleased to bring the Eurasian Film Festival to the heart of the world, New York City - the greatest cultural crossroad of the 21st Century.  Our emphasis is on the stunning artistic achievements taking place at the crossroads of Eurasia, where the culture and art of post-Soviet Central Europe and Central Asia, and of Turkey and the Balkan Republics, are informing and cross-fertilizing one another.  It is a story that needs to be told, and the presence in New York of vibrant immigrant communities from all these countries makes New York the ideal venue for this important event.
