Viennale – Vienna´s International Film Festival
If you´re visiting Vienna these days you´ll have to face moody autumn weather. May be the best way to escape fog and rain is to take advantage of the Viennale, Austria´s most important Film Festival. The international Film Festival takes place since 1960 and offers a broad spectrum of artistic movies from around the globe. Many movies are shown in original language (subtitled in german).
The Viennale 2013 takes place from October 3rd until November 6th. Participating cinemas are Metro, Filmmuseum, Stadtkino Künstlerhaus, Kino Schwarzenbergplatz and Gartenbaukino. All of them are places with a unique atmosphere and wonderful charme located in the city center. Every single one is easily reachable from every wombat´s CITY Hostel in Vienna. A special goodie is the retrospective in vienna´s Filmmuseum. The Viennale retrospective shows movies from previous editions of the festival. By the way, the Filmmuseum is worth a visit at an time of the year. For additional information, directions and most importantly the festival´s program check out their website www.viennale.at
