Cinematic Postcards

Everyone knows them: vacation films. As soon as movie cameras for private use entered the market, they were used to document moments outside everyday routines. Travel was a favorite subject for amateur filmmakers. These films show how the camera's gaze sustains, avoids, or seeks out confrontations with distant places and strangers.
 
A program showcasing a selection of private vacation movies to inspire anyone ready to travel and everyone staying at home. It also features ads for small-gauge cameras and films featuring Vienna as a travel destination. A film gauge was even developed for the needs of ambitious traveling filmmakers: UltraPan 8, a widescreen 8mm format conceived specifically for shooting panoramas.

For each series, films are listed in screening order.
