Musikfilmfestival, Rathausplatz

Film Festival in front of the City Hall 2021

30 years of the Film Festival on Vienna's Rathausplatz: a programme of superlatives and pure joie de vivre!

After the long months of lockdown, the 2021 festival will deliberately present a particularly appealing film programme with crowd-pullers that have ensured sold-out halls, concert halls and opera houses worldwide.

In addition to top-class operas such as La Traviata, Il Trovatore, Così fan tutte and Turandot, this year there will be numerous concert recordings of pop greats to experience on the Town Hall Square: David Bowie, Alicia Keys and Anastacia are as much a part of the programme as Shakira, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera.

Classical music, dance, jazz, world music and musicals are also duly represented at the Film Festival 2021. Home productions by the Vereinigte Bühnen Wien, the Volkstheater, the Salzburg Festival and the Seefestspiele Mörbisch round off the programme, which as usual has been lovingly curated by the renowned IMZ (International Music + Media Centre).
