An Archival Project of Film Academy Vienna

This academic year, Film Academy Vienna (the mdw’s Institute of Film and Television) is celebrating 65 years of existence. And to this day, it remains Austria’s only university-level place of training for future film professionals, thus occupying a central place within Austrian film history. In recognition of its importance for present as well as past artistic and cultural output, a team of scholars and artists is now devoting a project to its history.

This project, which is being conducted by specialists from Film Academy Vienna’s Media and Film Studies programme, focuses both on the Film Academy’s institutional development and on the film output of its students while there.
