The Diagonale’22 takes place from April 5 to 10, 2022.

The Diagonale is conceived as a forum for the presentation and discussion of Austrian cinematic production. The goal and task of the Diagonale is a nuanced, multifaceted and critical exploration of Austrian cinema as well as drawing the industry into the media spotlight and thereby into public discourse. Accordingly, it is the filmmakers and their works that lie at the heart of the festival, which, by means of a tailored program selection, offers the rare opportunity to become acquainted with Austrian film in all its diversity, to trace current artistic trends and, to make some (re-)discoveries along the way.
