The fourth Film Ball will take place on 15 March 2013 and there is already a star-studded list of VIP guests confirmed for the extravaganza.
The red carpet will be rolled out in front of the Vienna Rathaus from 6.30pm where the stars will show off their fantastic outfits and make their way into the fantastic setting the Vienna Rathaus.
Party-goers will then be treated to a Moët & Chandon champagne reception before enjoying dinner in the stunning Rathaus ball room.
Afterwards the presentation of the "Vienna Filmball Awards" will take place straight.
Already confirmed for this year are American actress Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), the German actress Cosma Shiva Hagen and the Austrian musician Andy Lee Lang.
Also in attendance will be new Yorker Christian Slater and French actor Gerard Depardieu as well as a much longer list of starts from the world of Austrian and international film.
The ball will officially start at 11 pm, when the Viennese dance school Roman Svabek will perform as they did in the previous year.
The party will then go on throughout the night with much live music, dancing and drinks.
Visitors can also look forward to some truly creative touches around the historical building which in previous years included such themed rooms as a Viennese Heuriger, Disco, Casino, Cigar Lounge and a multitude of bars.
The glamorous ball has attracted many Hollywood stars and film legends since 2010.
Last year’s biggest stars were Hollywood actresses Ornella Muti and Rose McGowan.
Sir Christopher Lee’s appearance was a particular highlight of the ball in 2011. Film legends from Austria, the United Kingdom, Germany and France have attended the ball over the course of the last four years and the event has firmly established itself in the Vienna society scene.
