Urbanities Film Festival

at Karlsplatz, ViennaJune 28 — July 19, 2019

A star-filled sky and summer nights, a big screen by the pond: CineCollective welcomes to its inaugural open-air film festival at Karlsplatz titled Kaleidoskop.Over the span of 22 summer nights, a cinematic kaleidoscope unfolds in one of Vienna’s most iconic settings. Mirroring the multiplicity of urban spaces, brittle and volatile, ever changing, a moving-dancing prism of life. This year’s films present an inspiring mix of the unexpected and new.

31 feature, documentary and short films from around 20 different countries weave together a myriad of lived realities, artistic experiments and evolving narratives, in turn, opening up new spaces for thought and conversation.

Kaleidoskop identifies as a film festival of diverse urban identities. Local artists and communities capture the open air stage with interventions and performances ahead of each film screening. In cooperation with the Wien Museum, we set the scene for an artistic, cinematic »takeover« of Karlsplatz. Contextual tags accompany the kaleidoscopic summer linking together the vast array of films offered in this year’s program.

Let us turn the wheel of the cinematic kaleidoscope, shifting perspectives and imagining change, be provoked, tempted and softened. Settle in and enjoy the screenings.

Open air screenings daily at 9 pm
Free seating. First come, first served.
