13.12.2019 – 15.12.2019; London.
The best new and recent films to emerge from Austria at the watchAUT festival in London.

The first edition of watchAUT provides a glimpse of the world as perceived by the current generation of Austrian filmmakers. The newest productions of Austrian film will be shown at the Picturehouse Central in London – among previews of anticipated new films by Austrian directors. It is also an opportunity to see on the big screen acclaimed titles that haven’t had a UK theatrical release. Apart from the screenings there will be Q&A sessions with directors and actors.

With a focus on today’s hottest issues including the environment, migration, and women making waves in front of and behind the camera, the festival is both a timely snapshot and an intriguing reflection of the current status quo.
