The event "One city. One film" is returning on 21 March 2013. Austrian producer and actor Karl Markovics’s film "Breathing" will be shown for free in 16 Viennese independent cinemas. Visitors can meet the film team and the actors in discussions with the audience.
Some cinemas offer a ticket reservation, for others one needs to get there as early as possible in order to get a seat. The films are shown from 15.00 to 22.00.
16 independent cinemas are participating in this year’s event: Filmhaus Kino Spittelberg, Stadtkino, Actors Studio, Cine Center, Admiral Kino, Burg Kino, Filmcasino, Top Kino, Haydn Kino, Votiv Kino, Bellaria Kino, Künstlerhaus Kino, Urania Kino, Gartenbaukino, Schikaneder Kino and Breitenseer Lichtspiele.
The event is organised by Echo Medienhaus in cooperation with the City of Vienna. A jury of experts chose Karl Markovics’ directing debut "Breathing".
"The jury wanted to focus on a film that was successful in Austria, but that also got positive feedback at international festivals", said Franz Schuber from Echo Medienhaus to wien.ORF.at.
The film received prices in six categories in the Austrian film awards in 2012. "Breathing" was internationally rewarded at film festivals in Canada, Australia and Sarajevo. In order to emphasize the international aspect of the film, Burg Kino and Haydn Kino will show the film with English subtitles.
The costs for the free film will be around 60,000 Euros. The money will be taken from the film fonds of the City of Vienna and donations. The goal is to support the independent cinemas in Vienna and attract attention to the Austrian film business.
Some cinemas will offer additional goodies. For example, Votivkino will be raffling two "film breakfasts" and Admiral Kino gives a free voucher for another film.
