The Diagonale’21 takes place from June 8 to 13, 2021. The entire film program is available here. Ticket sales start on June 2.
The Diagonale is conceived as a forum for the presentation and discussion of Austrian cinematic production. The goal and task of the Diagonale is a nuanced, multifaceted and critical exploration of Austrian cinema as well as drawing the industry into the media spotlight and thereby into public discourse. Accordingly, it is the filmmakers and their works that lie at the heart of the festival, which, by means of a tailored program selection, offers the rare opportunity to become acquainted with Austrian film in all its diversity, to trace current artistic trends and, to make some (re-)discoveries along the way.
Traces by Stephanie Rizaj and Marvin Kanas will be shown as part of the programme of Innovative Cinema.

City, coast, and sea—zones between which Traces creates transitions. Through the somnambulistic certainty of the protagonists, sound lost in fantastical reverie, the flux of imposing landscape images and dynamic handheld camera shots, a universe opens up in which borders become diffuse and time periods, experiences, as well as desires flow indissolubly into one another.
