Ulrich Seidl lets visitors and experts speak, discuss, and think about modern art until they arrive at their own dreams, visions, fears, at sexuality and death. While doing research for Bilder einer Ausstellung, important actors for later Seidl films were discovered, such as Erich Finsches (Hundstage) and René Rupnik (Der Busenfreund and PARADIES: Glaube). It also led to the first collaboration with Veronika Franz who later joined Seidl as co-screenwriter and long-term artistic collaborator.

Ulrich Seidl’s complete works in a DVD box set; including a book containing texts and interviews. On the occasion of the publication of the DVD box set by HOANZL, the Diagonale will present the first cinema screening of the two early television works Bilder einer Ausstellung and Der Busenfreund. After the screening Ulrich Seidl will speak with Stefan Grisseman, film critic, author, and longtime observer of his work.

In Reference
The festival program, In Reference, draws red lines straight through the program: In it, Austrian cinema enters into a cinematic dialogue with itself and with selected international positions—reacting, interacting, commenting. The program selectively undertakes the attempt to take up related themes of the festival program, to connect them with one another, open up doors to new conceptual spaces, and initiate dialogue.
