Peter Kubelka's program cycle What is Film is a key element in the work of the Austrian Film Museum. It was inaugurated in 1996 on the occasion of the centenary of cinema and now consists of 63 programmes of outstanding works. The series defines film as an independent art form, as a tool which cultivates new ways of thinking.
 
Was ist Film, Volume 14 of the FilmmuseumSynemaPublications, makes the cycle accessible via essays and film stills for the first time. The book contains writings by Harry Tomicek, Stefan Grissemann and Thomas Korschil on all 63 programmes, as well as 200 photographs, an index to the 74 artists in the cycle, and an in-depth interview with the curator.
 
"Once you delve into Peter Kubelka's programmatic cycle you will definitely be able to look at film history differently. Instead of a history of narratives, it will be about forms of seeing and hearing which, today, have very few places left to blossom." (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
