CROSSING EUROPE remains true to its program this year and relies on the attractiveness of European auteur cinema

Daring to focus the contents of an entire festival on Europe without turning a blind eye to socio-political imbalances or social wounds has paid off. In addition, the festival in 2015 again strives to present young filmmakers from Europe to a wider public in Austria and to award prizes to the young directors. 

From 23 to 28 AprilCROSSING EUROPE will present about 160 outstanding hand-picked feature films, documentaries and short films from all over Europe – a lot of premieres as well as internationally awarded films which will be shown for the first time in Austria. 

The festival invites numerous highlights from the past festival season (from A-Festivals in Berlin, Cannes, Locarno, Venice, Karlovy Vary, Warsaw or San Sebastían) as well as high-quality local filmmaking. 

CROSSING EUROPE, the second-largest international film festival in Austria, also concentrates on films from so-called "low capacity countries", i.e. countries with a smaller and underdeveloped film industry, and productions that find no room in the regular cinema business far too often and despite international festival success.

In the official program, international festival guests and the local cinema audience can look forward to a total of 160 selected feature films, documentaries, and short films from 45different countries – including 109 premieres (42 world premieres, 4 international premieres and 65 Austrian premieres). The festival year 2015, the twelfth festival edition, comprises a total of 180 program places.

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
