On December 18, 2016 Peter Konlechner, co-founder of the Austrian Film Museum and its co-director until 2001, passed away at the age of 80. It is with deep regret that the museum and all of its employees say farewell to this "larger-than-life personality"(Eileen Bowser), "this genius called Konlechner" (Herbert Achternbusch). Each visit to the Austrian Film Museum is an opportunity to behold what he and Peter Kubelka have created.

A small portion of that legacy will be addressed during an evening in memory of Peter Konlechner on March 16 – with some of those who shared part of his journey as guests, and films as well as video documents from the 1960s to the present day.
