Max Steiner tells his scary yet beautiful fairytales.
At the entrance to the “Kaiserpromenade” a large panel features the Christmas story according to the Gospel of Luke. After enjoying the tasty complementary Advent punch, the path continues past the scented cottage exhibiting Johann Mayrhofer’s beautiful nativity scene. The winter forest looks to be enchanted by the many colorful floodlights after which an Advent quartet awaits you, along with an angel to lead the way.

19. Filmfestival Radstadt - November 4. - 8, 2020

In the round of small, ambitious Austrian film festivals, the Filmfestival Radstadt is indispensable. You can see the latest Austrian films, international new releases, local film events and cinematic peculiarities.

Every year the home concept is put up for discussion: the common cliché of the "Heimatfilms" with untouched alpine meadows, steep slopes and green valleys as a longing image, faces topics such as the home sale, the generational change, fleeing the homeland or losing one's homeland. A broad concept of home is discussed. The yearning for freedom, self-determination, integration and solidarity determines the lives of people worldwide as well as in close proximity. Impressive and award-winning documentary and feature films show individual life pictures.

In addition to being able to see films that are otherwise shown only in large cities, the film festival offers space for discussions and opinions and invites renowned filmmakers and actors to audience discussions. The audience has the opportunity to vote annually for a public winning film.
