Vienna Independent Shorts

VIS Vienna Independent Shorts is celebrating its 10 years anniversary in 2013, showing more than 260 films from around 40 countries at the Künstlerhaus Kino and the Austrian film museum from May 28th to June 2nd, 2013. 75 films compete in three central competitions – Fiction & Documentary, Animation Avantgarde and the NationalCompetition – for awards worth more than 20,000 euros, while the best Austrian music video is awarded with the first ever Austrian Music Video Award. A whole day will be decidated to music videos, including screenings as an „expanded cinema“ experience as well as a live concert at brut.
This year’s festival motto Strange Days was inspired by Kathryn Bigelow’s science fiction film and features a journey through the surreal cinema and a joint film programme with the international short film festivals of Winterthur and Hamburg, addressing the tiny everyday tremors as well as great social, cultural or geopolitical subversions.

Since 2004, VIS has honored well known filmmakers with tributes, from Miranda July to Ben Rivers and Virgil Widrich. This year, Austria’s biggest film festival honors Irish animation artist David OReilly, who will present his independent films, give a masterclass and show „found animation“ as a carte blanche at the film museum.
Other guests include Momoko Seto and Alexei Dmitriev as artists in residence, while special programs range from Midnight Movies to a 10 years highlight program, lectures and a program on political filmmaking. As festival previews, VIS pays tribute to Austrian avantgarde artists Michaela Grill and Billy Roisz (May 22/23) and release astrawberry double feature at Votivkino (May 24-31). Two weeks after the festival, the first ever Cat Video Festival Vienna takes place at the Viennese Prater (June 14).

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget
