Open-air cinema

At the annual Music Film Festival, Vienna's City Hall Square becomes the meeting point for music lovers and night-owls – because the focus is on music films and culinary delicacies. The range of music films shown covers everything from opera to pop. The Music Film Festival is free of charge and runs the whole summer long – from July 2 to September 4, 2022.

The Cinema like never before at Augartenspitz, celebrates a mix of popular movie classics and exciting new discoveries from Austria and around the world again from June 23. Screenings include the best films of Oskar Werner, to whom an exhibition in the Metro Kinokulturhaus is currently dedicated. One aspect of the program honors the musician and artist Willi Resetarits, who died unexpectedly. Awaited with excitement is "Corsage", the new film from Marie Kreutzer, which clears up the myth surrounding Empress Sisi. At the cinema sessions, classic silent movies will be accompanied by live music. Culinary delights are supplied by the Grünstern cinema heuriger.

The open-air cinema Kaleidoskop on Karlsplatz shows films that touch, amuse, get audiences thinking and discussing, dreaming and taking action on 17 evenings – and all with free admission. The focus is on current film works that bring the diversity of living together in urban spaces to the big screen.

See you outdoors!

The Cinema on the Roof of the Main Library on the Gürtel shows national and international film highlights that you simply mustn't miss. From Austria comes Ulrich Seidl's new film "Rimini" as well as the moving gay drama "Große Freiheit" (Great Freedom) directed by Sebastian Meise. The newest James Bond movie will also be shown.

A traveling cinema in the old tradition is the Volxkino. It has pitched its tents at unusual locations for over thirty years: between market stalls or social housing buildings, in parks or on public squares. Apart from feature films and documentaries away from the mainstream, the Volxkino also focuses on Austrian film, including the Deix film "Rotzbub". The event starts at Karmelitermarkt in the 2nd district on May 25. Admission is free of charge on all dates.

The frame[o]ut Film Festival in the MuseumsQuartier presents a colorful cross-section of documentary films and numerous independent films from around the world on 16 evenings in July and August.

dotdotdot, a small festival for short films, is held again in the idyllic garden of the Austrian Folklore Museum. Short films on the topic of utopias will be shown under the motto "This time tomorrow".
