The Film Festival at Vienna’s Rathausplatz
Since it first began, almost 15 million visitors have been enthralled by the Film Festival at Vienna’s Rathausplatz, attracting around 900,000 visitors each year from Austria and abroad.
It takes skill to produce art and the secret of the Film Festival’s success is bringing together great skills: a program that brings you big names and impressive productions on a 300 m² screen in the fields of opera, operetta, dance, pop and jazz, a children’s opera festival, which became a sensational success and an international top gastronomy experience under the leadership of the internationally active company DO & CO, that is second to none.
The Children’s Opera Festival in the Rathauspark
The Children’s Opera Festival has become an indispensable item on the Film Festival’s programme due to its huge success. This year again, young music lovers from 6 to 14 years old will be able to enjoy filmed operas and children’s music productions for free every Friday at 5pm on a daylight-adapted LED screen in the Rathauspark. Before the musical enjoyment begins, the "Bewegung findet Stadt" initiative, in cooperation with CLUB WIEN, will again offer a free sports and activity programme in the Rathauspark from 14:00 o'clock, giving the children plenty of opportunities to play and romp.
If there’s one thing that can’t be missing from the Film Festival, it’s the amazing culinary offering. This season, 26 gastronomers will once again live up to their names and offer a wonderful tasting experience ranging from a quick lunchtime snack to extended evening feasts.
The numerous side-events will also ensure that the entertainment on the Rathausplatz is varied.
