Film Festival 2020 #soWIENie

Each summer for the past three decades, the City of Vienna has offered appealing cultural attractions free of charge at Vienna’s Rathausplatz. For a whole 65 days, the Film Festival offers a unique combination of major music productions and top-quality catering under the open sky.

In 2020, the popular public event kicks off with an innovative concept. Visitors can look forward to a reinterpreted Film Festival that complies with all the measures designed to protect people’s health while also ensuring laid-back cultural and culinary enjoyment.

A superb musical programme set against an impressive backdrop, combined with the lightness and ease of summer, is guaranteed to make for a Film Festival experience at Rathausplatz “like never before” (= #soWIENie).
