Filmmuseum on Location:

At the Diagonale in Graz

March 29 to April 2, 2017, Diagonale (Graz)

The Film Museum has once again been invited to curate a film series for the Diagonale – Festival of Austrian Film. This year's focus is on the interaction of pop and film culture in Austria. Taking as its starting point the occupation of the Arena Wien in 1976, which brought pop, film and political activism together in a special way, the series This is not America – Austrian Drifters searches for cinematic aspects of pop culture, exploring how pop became a visible force in cinema and locating the meeting points between them in both documentary and fictional forms. The series includes works by John Cook, Peter Ily Huemer, Barbara Albert, Kurt Kren, Dietmar Brehm, Karin Fisslthaler and many others.
