25.5. – 4.6.2023
The Crossroads Festival invites you to engage with decisive developments of the present. In addition to current challenges, our selection of exciting new documentaries makes people, initiatives and movements visible who, even in the face of difficult times, do not lose heart and work in a variety of ways to preserve our livelihoods, for justice, peace, democratization and a future worth living for everyone. Impressive pictures are used to tell inspiring stories that show possible courses of action and give courage.
Many films celebrate their Austrian premiere during the festival and have been awarded various prizes. Conversations following the screenings make it possible to exchange ideas with filmmakers and protagonists and to discuss the topics dealt with by the films. Additional lectures, debates and workshops with scientists and activists complete the program.
