Since 1964, the Austrian Film Museum has dedicated itself to the collection, preservation, research, and communication of
the medium of film in all its aspects. Most prominently, this includes the public presentation of film as an art form, cultural
technique, and historical document in our "Invisible Cinema" in the Albertina building. At the Film Museum, films are shown in their original format and on the best possible film prints available worldwide (35mm
or 16mm). Works that were originally produced or presented on video or digitally are shown in the same format. In rare cases,
works produced on film are presented digitally. This is done for curatorial or conservation reasons and is specifically stated. Films are shown in their original language version and subtitled if necessary. For our international guests, screenings in
English are specially indicated.
The Austrian Film Museum and sixpackfilm are deeply saddened by the death of our beloved friend and artistic collaborator
Gustav Deutsch. Gustav passed away on November 2, after a short, grave illness.
