watchAUT is a new film festival that provides a glimpse of the world as perceived by the current generation of Austrian filmmakers. Presented by the Austrian Cultural Forum London, watchAUT focuses on today’s hottest issues including the environment, women, and migration. The festival opens with a gala preview of Little Joe, director Jessica Hausner’s foreboding tale of genetically modified flowers starring Emily Beecham (a role that won Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival), Ben Whitshaw and Kerry Fox. Followed by a Q&A. Other acclaimed Austrian films to watch out for include multi-award winning Styx, plus other female-focused features The Ground Beneath My Feet and Mademoiselle Paradis. Documentaries include Chaos, a compelling story of three Syrian women exposed to war, while Earth, Welcome To Sodom and The Green Lie explore the environmental issues that afflict our planet.
