Hull Independent Cinema: Austrian Short Film Festival

Sun 5th May 2019 @ 3:00 pm


Hull Independent Cinema: Austrian Short Film Festival

Dir: Various | 2018 | Austria | Unrated 18+ entry | 180 mins I Language – various, mostly German, with English subtitles

Your ticket allows you to come and go for the duration of the 3-hour programme


A selection of films from the shortlist for the Best Short Film Prize at the 2019 Austrian Film Academy Film Awards. The programme includes all three nominees, BESTER MANN, VIRGIN WOODS and the eventual prizewinner, EXCUSE ME I’M LOOKING FOR THE PING-PONG ROOM AND MY GIRLFRIEND.

In BESTER MANN, shy teenager Kevin is taken in by the older Bennie, in a disturbing tale about the vulnerability of youth, the power of intimacy and the murky motives that often lie behind supposedly innocent actions. Shot on 16mm film, the ethereal VIRGIN WOODS (ZALESIE) is a dreamlike story about one young woman’s innocent ideas about love and death. The winner of the Best Short Film Award, EXCUSE ME… follows Aron as he wanders the bizarre world of the corridors and rooms of an Austrian mountain health resort, looking for his girlfriend following an argument.

The screening will also include a selection of the other titles that featured on the initial shortlist for the Award, making for a varied and fascinating programme.

This screening is organised  in partnership with Theresa Guczogi of the University of Hull, and is one of nine screenings taking place in partnership with universities across the UK and Ireland. The screening is sponsored by the Austrian Cultural Forum London


AUSTRIAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL is unrated – entry is for 18+ only
