FESTIVAL


+ MOVING IMAGES ON AND BEYOND THE SCREEN
+ LIVE-ELEMENTS, INSTALLATIONS, INTERVENTIONS
+ SPREADING THROUGHOUT THE CITY
+ DISCOURSE & & NETWORKING SESSIONS
a+f+v presents experiments in moving images on and beyond the cinema screen. The media and spatial boundaries of the screen or cinema hall are constantly being explored anew, going beyond conventional screenings in hybrid screening formats with live elements, installation screenings, interventions in public spaces and many other work-specific presentation formats.

The Breitenseer Lichtspiele, founded in 1905, presenting film ever since without interruption are a consistent part of Vienna's cinema culture. The cinema forms the festival’s centre from where screenings, performances, concerts and many other work-specific formats spread throughout the city. Submitters are asked to describe performative formats with special requirements for projection/presentation (spatial/installation, live elements, specific technical equipment) as comprehensibly as possible in order to be taken into account in the selection and programming process.

The artistic programme is framed by discourse formats and networking sessions; in the first edition of the festival there will be a special focus on cross-industry dialogue between visual arts/media art, music and film.

The programme will be published in April 2024. To stay up to date to a+f+v’s activities feel welcome to subscribe to our newsletter.
