Talks with Women Film Pioneers

Women directors, screenwriters, editors, cinematographers, and set designers have left their mark on Austrian film and TV, and yet each generation of filmgoers has had to rediscover their names anew – an ongoing canonization of their work only began recently. While revolutionary women from the film industry long taught elsewhere, the expertise of women from the Austrian film industry has seldom been institutionalized and has been (even actively) denied to students. In a series of 10 two-hour talks, we will bring several of these film pioneers front and center, screen individual films, and shed light on their work through film clips. An evening for passing on the flame. The talks will be moderated by a new generation of people close to the industry. The goal: the exchange of experiences, networking, world revolution – you name it. (Wilbirg Brainin-Donnenberg, Julia Pühringer / Translation: Ted Fendt)
Idea: Julia Pühringer. Concept and realization: Wilbirg Brainin-Donnenberg and Julia Pühringer in collaboration with FC GLORIA Frauen Vernetzung Film.
