International Documentary Film Festival Vienna 2015
Mo, 4. – Fr, 8. May 2015
For the ninth time the ethnocinecaturns Vienna into a hotspot for documentary filmmaking: we invite our audience to explore the diversity of the genre and to enjoy the specialities and novelties of ethnographic and documentary filmmaking.
Together with our highly esteemed curators – Arash T. Riahi, Gerald Straub and Ulrike Davis-Sulikowski – the team has chosen 48 films for this year’s programme. From the 4th to the 8th of May 2015 Vienna’s VotivKino will be the place to experience the diversity of human lifeworlds and to explore complex questions of human coexistence. 18 international filmmakers will be present and available for discussions with the audience.
The filmfest also highlights the work of young filmmakers: for the second time now we present ESSA – the ethnocineca Student Shorts Award – with a full programme on Wednesday evening (May 6). Following a long tradition, the films from the ethnocinecaProject Workshop will be screened on the last night of the filmfest, before we head to our After Party in Club U at Karlsplatz. An interactive photo exhibition and a concert at the opening will further accompany the main program.
