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technique, and historical document in our "Invisible Cinema" in the Albertina building.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.
We are delighted to announce that the "Invisible Cinema" will soon reopen as a space for all to share the experience of cinema. From July 2 to August 16, 2020, we will be showing some of the most beautiful or rare prints from our film collection on the
big screen. [...]
The Film Museum is greatly saddened by the passing of the artist Gertie Fröhlich, who died on May 17, 2020. The graphic artist
and painter was closely connected to us for many years and was the creator of the internationally renowned visual identity
of the Film Museum from the 1960s until the late 1980s.
