Whether contemporary or traditional, oblique or evident, big or small, professionally realized or autonomously handcrafted, Super8 or 35mm, there are no limits set for the movie. From regional to international cinema, newcomers to professionals, everyone has a platform here.


To discover the new and the classics, to foster the exchange and networking of filmmakers and film-lovers from Kitzbühel, Austria and the entire world, these are the goals of the Filmfestival Kitzbühel. In its specially founded Institute of the Filmfestival Kitzbühel, rising filmmakers are particularly encouraged and acclaimed.

From its screenplay writing workshop “Drehbuchklausur” to the award ceremonies, from picnics to parties, the Filmfestival Kitzbühel is diverse, versatile and extraordinary.
