On September 12-17, the American Film Showcase (AFS) will take place in Ulaanbaatar and Darkhan, Mongolia. The American Film Showcase (AFS) brings award-winning contemporary American documentary and independent narrative films to audiences around the world, offering a view of American society and culture.
Funded by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the University Of Southern California School Of Cinematic Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Ulaanbaatar and Arts Council of Mongolia, the Showcase highlights the value of film in fostering understanding of American society and culture by bringing award-winning American films to global audiences.
Through the exploration of diverse topics including disabilities, social justice, freedom of the press, and the environment, AFS aims to inspire cooperation, dialogue, and debate.
The AFS in Mongolia consists of two primary components: delivery of targeted film classes and workshops for professionals and the organization of an AFS screening series free for the general public. Two film envoys will visit Mongolia as part of the AFS: Sandy McLeod, director of featured AFS film Seeds of Time, and director Andrew Garrison. In addition to the capacity-building and training component, AFS programming will include five film screenings at Tengis cinema.
