Long Night of Museums
The Austrian Film Museum is a cinematheque, its exhibitions take place on the screen. Several 40-minute programs offer a glimpse
into our activities: From archive to programming, from special collections to research activities, from film as a document
of everday life to its historical, technological und aesthetic aspects. Pivotal to all this: the experience of watching film
together on the big screen.

This children's program (age 8+) shows how colorful film was from the very beginning.
7 p.m. Handmade Film Tricks

8 p.m. Film as Object: Curating a Film Collection

9 p.m. Čarodějův učeň / Krabat
