Film festivals in Vienna

There are two film festivals back to back in Vienna this May and June. The "Let's CEE Film Festival" shows films from Central and Eastern Europe, while the "Vienna Independent Shorts" focuses on short films.

Besides Austria's biggest film festival, the Viennale, there is a constant stream of small themed festivals in Vienna - the first being the "Let's CEE Filmfestival" which takes place in the end of May. The festival will show around 30 first-class films and documentaries from Central and Eastern Europe, all of which can be seen for the first time in Austrian cinemas. The Oscar-nominated film "In Darkness - A true story" from Poland will be screened at the opening in the presence of the director, Agnieszka Holland. A collection of films, musical performances and DJ lines in the Ost-Klub as well as photo exhibition in the Galerie auf der Pawlatsche in the Altes AKH also serves to complete the "Let's CEE Filmfestival". In between, people can come together in the festival headquarters in Strandbar Herrmann.

The "VIS Vienna Independent Shorts" starts on 6 June in Vienna's Gartenbaukino. The international festival shows the best short films from around the world. The highlight is an audiovisual live performance by Robert Seidel at the closing event "Night of the Light". The German media artist and his perception experiments can be experienced in museums, galleries and cinemas around the world.

More information can be found on the websites of the respective festivals: www.letsceefilmfestival.com and www.viennashorts.com
