From early June we'll be glad to present you here the detailed programme of the Film Festival 2017.
First look at 2017
Initial preparations are already underway for the Film Festival 2017, from the 1st of July to the 3rd of September.
The suggested theme of this 27th festival is “Club 27” or “Forever 27 Club”. This expression covers musicians who died at the age of 27, including Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jimmy Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
The organisers are also looking at concert recordings by artists celebrating impressive birthdays: Kurt Cobain (50), Jimmy Hendrix (75), Elton John (70), Barbra Streisand (75), Ella Fitzgerald and Dean Martin (both 100). And of course, the plan for 2017 also includes performances by the great opera houses such as La Scala from Milan, or the Vienna State Opera, and top orchestras such as the Vienna Philharmonic, and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra.
