Crossing Europe is a cross-border project, an attractive and communicative platform for young filmmakers, cineasts and representatives of the film industry. The program of the festival combines aspects of European history and culture seen from the viewpoint of multiple observers: those looking at Europe from outside, as a citadel, and the observers from the inside, faced in their turn with their own challenges.
As many as 160 artistic, documentary and short film productions will be presented during the festival at the Moviemento (OK-Platz 1, 4020 Linz), City-Kino (Graben 30, 4020 Linz) and Ursulinensaal (OK-Platz 1, 4020 Linz) venues.
ICR Vienna, the Polish Institute in Vienna, the Czech Centre in Vienna, the Embassy of Switzerland in Austria, EUNIC Austria members are among the organization and cooperation partners of Crossing Europe Linz 2016.
