For 8 days, the ethnocineca shows current international documentary film cinema on the subject of LIMINALITIES with 48 films from 41 production countries. The program of this year’s festival includes a world premiere and 35 Austrian premieres. The films are accompanied by an extensive supporting programme.

Insecurities, worries and fears of being in between are the themes of this year’s films, but they also tell of hopes and dreams when you leave the status quo behind and dare to make a new start. The film and supporting program is dedicated to states of limbo that are caught between standstill and change.

At the opening, the ethnocineca starts with a keynote lecture by Mariangela Mihai (Western Washington University & Georgetown University) and presents the Vienna premiere of the Armenian film “5 Dreamers and a Horse”.
