Is your image of Europe missing a big chunk of the ’other Europe’, the one less present in travel itineraries and Melbourne cinemas? Or have you caught a glimpse of this fascinating world and you want to further immerse yourself in it?

Join Euraw Stories every month for a good dose of the other Europe through films from Central, Eastern Europe and The Balkans!

Australiana Serba uncovers Euraw Stories

EuЯaw Iиc. is a non-profit organisation from  Melbourne that aims to showcase, support and promote art projects inspired by the culture of Central, Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

Its first project is Euraw Stories, a Film Society that screens award winning films from the region.  EuRaw Stories provides the Australian audiences with access to the new cinema and the rich culture, the music and the languages of Central, Eastern Europe and The Balkans.

The program helps filmmakers from these countries reach new audiences and potentially local festivals and distributors. Some of the films have never been screened in Australia so they hope to promote cinema from the region and nurture the audience’s appetite for it.

Once a month, Euraw Stories screens award-winning movies followed by conversations with artists, filmmakers and subject-matter experts. It is a must see event for all the film buffs, the curious-natured, lovers of that part of the world and those wanting to expand and shake a little bit their understanding of Europe.

Euraw Stories strives to create a multicultural experience through films and special events that truly represent the diversity of the 22 different nationalities from the region.

Join the program and engage with Eastern and Central European cultures. Love it, hate it, feel how the same and how different people all over the world are!

All the films have English subtitles. Enjoy the screening and let those foreign languages be music to your ears!

Euraw Stories home for the rest of the year is the state-of-the-art Performance Space at Library at The Dock at 107 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands. If you haven’t been there yet, they’re giving you the best excuse to visit.
