Film festivals in Vienna
In addition to Austria's biggest film festival, the Viennale, there are frequent smaller themed festivals in Vienna. The "Let's CEE Filmfestival" will be held for the fourth time at the beginning of October. The festival shows around 120 first-class dramatic, documentary and short films from Central and Eastern Europe. Most are Austrian premieres and are screened in the original language with German or English subtitles. The opening film "The High Sun" won the competition "Un Certain Regard" in Cannes. Also being shown is the film "Body" (see picture), whose director was awarded a Silver Bear in Berlin this year. The extensive supporting program ranges from discussions to exhibitions and concerts. In between, people meet to the sounds of the DJ at Strandbar Herrmann.
The international film festival for human rights, "this human world", starts on 3 December and for the next nine days shows around 80 films that deal with current conflicts and adopt a social and political stance. There are also additional audience discussions, workshops and concerts during this event.
