The Idea

The Filmfestival Kitzbühel is essentially: young, creative and versatile. Young, not only because it was recently founded in 2013, but because of its’ focus on “young film”. Upcoming movie directors and producers get a chance to present their first film projects.

Whether contemporary or traditional, oblique or evident, big or small, professionally realized or autonomously handcrafted, Super8 or 35mm, there are no limits set for the movie. From regional to international cinema, newcomers to professionals, everyone has a platform here


To discover the new and the classics, to foster the exchange and networking of filmmakers and film-lovers from Kitzbühel, Austria and the entire world, these are the goals of the Filmfestival Kitzbühel. In its specially founded Institute of the Filmfestival Kitzbühel, rising filmmakers are particularly encouraged and acclaimed.

From its screenplay writing workshop “Drehbuchklausur” to the award ceremonies, from picnics to parties, the Filmfestival Kitzbühel is diverse, versatile and extraordinary


This year, Felix Mitterer will be honored in a retrospective. The Tyrolean is not only known beyond our borders as an actor and author, but is embedded in the hearts and minds of many Austrians as a regional poet and people´s writer. Visitors of the 3rd Filmfestival Kitzbühel can look forward to a diverse program.
