In the framework of the Festival of Austrian Film, international juries award Austria’s most highly endowed film prizes. At the center of the multifaceted program is the film competition. With a mix of established and new names, it provides the opportunity to make unexpected discoveries and grasp the diversity and vibrancy of Austria’s current film landscape.

The Zur Person series contemplates the domestic film and cinema culture by tracing the biography of acclaimed Austrian filmmakers. In 2022, the program will be devoted to the internationally award-winning duo Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel, whose recent honors include the Grand Diagonale Prize Documentary Film Notes from the Underworld. Parallel to the Diagonale’22, Camera Austria will show an extensive photo exhibition by Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel from March 18 until May 22. The joint program marks the first comprehensive showcase of the oeuvre of the auteur filmmakers and photographers.

In 2022, the Diagonale’s festival trailer will be produced by a collective for the first time. During the festival, The Golden Pixel Cooperative will also present a related project at Kunsthaus Graz. Together with the opening film, the trailer of the Diagonale’22 will be announced on February 8.
