Program May / June 2022
(May 3 to June 30, 2022)
May 26 to June 30, 2022Welcome to the revolutionary cosmos of Ulrike Ottinger! To celebrate the 80th birthday of this cinematic pioneer, multi-talented artist, and world traveler, we will present a complete retrospective of all her films and show you something you've never seen before. With her equal parts auteurist and avant-garde cinema, Ottinger is a filmmaker who refuses to conform to any mainstream. Her films follow two tendencies: We can differentiate between an artifice-heavy and eccentric body of work strongly invested in fiction and an ethnographic, documentary body of work based around photography and editing. Both convey a subtle sense for fairy tales and magic, for the manufactured quality of everyday life, and its enchantments. Ottinger's films are very alluring, hers is a cinema of attractions full of astonishment and visual curiosity.
May 4 and 5, 2022Immediately following its 19th edition, Crossing Europe makes a stop in Vienna with a selection of films representing the Euro-centric festival's 2022 program.
May 6 to 10, 2022The Italian feminism of the 1970s clearly stands out among other contemporary Western feminisms. Distinguished by its radicalism and the diversity of approaches and forms, the movement included a number of practices and theories that coexisted, communicated with one another, and often collided.

May 12 to 14, 2022Like cinema, Frieda Grafe saw the grand hotel as a transformative space. A program drawn from and inspired by her essay "Film Historical Hotel Guide."

May 22, 2022The Film Museum shows a selection of film documents that trace the development of the communist movement in Austria and make the great idea of peace, friendship and international understanding in the middle of Vienna visual reality once again.
June 9 to 11, 2022Since July 2019, the Austrian Film Museum has been a collaborative partner in a research project into the practice of educational films in Austria. The final symposium will place the results within an international context (in English).
